Bartlett Ninth Grade Academy Dress Code

Bartlett Academy students’ dress and appearance should reflect reasonable standards of health, cleanliness, modesty and safety. It should remain a matter of personal pride to maintain high standards of neatness and appropriateness of dress and appearance so as to reflect favorably upon yourself, your parents and Bartlett City Schools. All experiences during school years should be a part of a student's preparation to take his/her place in society as a mature and responsible individual. The responsibility for the appearance of the students begins with parents and the students themselves.

Students' clothing, make-up and hair styles should reflect neatness, cleanliness and self-respect so that the school is a desirable place in which to promote learning and character development. A student who is not attired appropriately or exhibits grooming which is detrimental and/or distractive to the school environment shall be asked to refrain from wearing the inappropriate attire in the future or shall be required to make arrangements for more suitable or appropriate dress.

Bartlett Academy dress code requirements are in compliance with BCS Guidelines, and will be strictly enforced. For clarity, tights or leggings must be covered with shorts or a skirt or dress that meets the 4-inch requirement in the front and back. Students that are unable to correct a dress code violation will be sent to the main office to call home for a change of clothes. Students will complete their work in ISS until clothes arrive at school. Additional dress code violations will result in a discipline referral and consequence.
