Grooming And Dress

The Talladega County Board of Education believes that acceptable grooming and dress are essential elements in the teaching and learning process.  Students are expected to dress in such a manner that will ensure health and safety and not distract from the learning environment.  Dress and personal appearance are not to be disruptive or interfere with the educational interest and welfare of the students or purpose of public school education.  Students will not wear any article of clothing or display any insignia or sign that shows disrespect for any person, creed, race, color, sex or nationality.  Parents/Guardians are expected to monitor students dress.  Students in violation of the dress code will be reported to the principal's office and subject to disciplinary action.
