Dress Code Information 2016-17


Students are expected to adhere to the Student Dress Code Policy of the Cobb County Board of Education (JCDB-R).  All students of the Cobb County School District are encouraged to observe a standard of grooming and dress consistent with the level of formality of the school situation.

  1. All students of the Cobb County School District shall be required to maintain the level of personal hygiene necessary to ensure a healthy school environment and to refrain from any mode of dress which proves to contribute to any disruption of school functions.
  2. Administrators and teachers shall enforce the dress code rule, and the principal or his designee shall be the final judge as to the appropriateness, neatness and cleanliness of the wearing apparel, or whether or not apparel is disruptive, distractive or in violation of the dress code.
  3. All students shall maintain an acceptable standard of dress. The minimum standard of dress for students shall be as follows:
  4. Shoes shall be worn. No slippers, flip flops, or athletic sandals.
    b. Midriffs shall be covered.
    c. Appropriate under-garments must be worn and may not be visible.
    d. Strapless garments and camisoles must be worn with a jacket.
    e. Tank-tops will not be permitted. Low-cut, revealing necklines are not appropriate.
    f. Shorts and skirts must be at or within 3 inches of the knee.
  5. Lounge/pajama pants may not be worn.
  6. Pants/jeans must be worn at the waist.
    i. Caps, hats, bandanas, and do rags are not to be worn in the school building during the school day unless there is a special activity during which they are deemed appropriate by the school administration.
    j. Clothing or ornamentation displaying or advertising substances illegal for minors is prohibited. Suggestive phrases, designs, markings, or profanities are also prohibited.
    k. Clothing or ornamentation advocating, promoting, or suggesting illegal activity is also prohibited.


  1. Proper dress is an important component for sustaining the formality of the school setting, and we solicit and appreciate your support and cooperation. Parents or students who have specific questions about a garment’s appropriateness should consult the local school administration before wearing the garment to school. Students who are improperly dressed will NOT be allowed to attend class, and assignment to ISS (In-School Suspension) will be the alternate learning environment. Students who demonstrate a pattern of wearing pants below the waist level will be required to wear a tucked-in shirt and belt. Violators of the dress code will be placed in isolation until proper clothing is obtained or for the remainder of the school day.


Administrative consequences for dress code violations (new start each semester): Offense 1 – warning; Offense 2 – 2 days of detention; Offense 3 – 3 days of ISS; Offense 4 – 5 days of ISS; Offense 5 – 1 day of OSS.
