Uniform Enforcement Policy
Woodbridge School District families will be informed of the school’s Uniform Dress Code Policy in a timely manner in order to give families’ adequate time to obtain the appropriate required dress. Information will be sent to each family detailing the items of acceptable dress as soon as the Woodbridge School District School Uniform Dress Code Proposal is approved by the Woodbridge Board of Education. Families will also receive information on pricing and the availability of the required items of clothing as well as names of local children’s clothing stores that stock these items. Local stores have been contacted informing them of the need for this type of clothing and soliciting their cooperation in providing these items. Students are expected to wear their uniform to all formal school events to include, but not limited to awards, recognition programs, and events where students are representing the school district.
Rather than a punitive measure, every effort will be taken to ensure that students will be in compliance with Woodbridge School District’s uniform dress code. Those with chronic violations of the uniform dress code will be invited to a conference with their families, teacher, and the principal. At this conference, the school will work with the families to assist them to comply with the uniform dress code. Student dress compliance will be recognized as a part of school recognition programs. Each time a child attends school out of compliance with the uniform dress code, the classroom teacher will document it on the uniform dress code violations recording sheet. This record will be kept by the teacher. The procedure for violations is as follows:
1. First Violation Teacher documents incident, office contacts family, and the student is required to change into a shirt, if available, supplied by the school for the day.
2. Second Violation Teacher documents incident, office contacts family, the student is required to change into a shirt, if available, supplied by the school for the day, and a detention will be assigned.
3. Third and Subsequent Violations Teacher documents incident, office contacts family, the student is required to change into a shirt, if available, supplied by the school for the day, a detention is assigned, and a parent conference is scheduled. The parent will be asked to leave a uniform at school, which will be labeled, for his/her child. The child will be required to change into his/her uniform at any time the uniform code is violated.
The district reserves the right to implement and enforce disciplinary measures as deemed appropriate by the staff of the Woodbridge School District.
