Your school has already chosen a dress code policy, and now you need a fair way to enforce it to your students. First, it’s important to clearly communicate the policy and consequences to the students. Your school rules might be along the lines of a “three strikes” system where the first two dress code violations don’t receive a consequence, but the third one does (such as a lunch detention).
When a policy is clearly violated by students, administrators should be sensitive to the matter and speak to the student privately. To prevent further occurrences, administrators should issue and record warnings, follow through with consequences and encourage students to correct the behavior. In some situations, a note or phone call home may help, as some parents are unaware that their student is coming to school in violation of your dress code.
Dress code violations should be tracked and recorded by administrators in your student information system at a time that works best for your school.
