VICTORY HIGH SCHOOL

Dress Code Amendment

Victory High School has a dress code. The dress code applies during all school days and during all school-sponsored events. Victory High School’s dress code has been adopted to improve the educational environment for all students. Therefore, we have instituted a dress code that;

Fostera sense of school identity and community;
Preparestudents for the expectations related to professional attire required by future institutions, organizations and
employers;
Ensure
that our students focus on learning instead of clothing;
Increase school safety and security by making the presence to visitors and outsiders immediately;
Reducethe cost of clothing for families.

Enforcement of Dress Code Policy

It is the goal of the school to have a dress code, which makes things easier for parents and students rather than more difficult. For that reason, we have made every effort to be clear about this policy and consistent in its enforcement. Parents who have questions or concerns should contact the school immediately and seek clarification.

Like all school policies, the dress code policy is strictly enforced. Although it may seem as if small exceptions should be no problem, we cannot allow deviations from this code. Our staff does not have the time to inspect every item for acceptability or exception. If the policy states, "shoes should be all black or all white” or white tops (shirt, blouse), black bottoms (pant, skirt) it means just that. It is important that all students adhere to the same code. If an exception is made for one student, it would then have to apply to all students; Therefore, all students must follow the same code.  It is in the best interest of everyone if Victory High School says what it and means what it says.” Please read the code and purchase school clothing accordingly. We have tried to make the policy clear and detailed in order to reduce ambiguity (confusion). Families who have concerns or questions should contact the school immediately.

Students who are out of dress code are not allowed to attend their classes.Parents of students who are not in dress code will be asked to bring the proper attire to school. In addition, dressing inappropriately may result in disciplinary consequences.

Victory High School dress code is not intended to suppress speech or expression. Students have alternate ways to express themselves through, among other things, verbal and written speech in the classrooms, Art, Music or Drama classes.

The governing Dress Code requires that uniforms be worn Monday through Thursday.
