    Dress Code
     
    With the support and assistance of their respective communities, Lorain City Schools has developed a uniform policy. This policy is in addition to the general requirements of the Lorain City Schools Dress Code. Refer to your school office for up-to-date information on uniform policies.

    The Lorain City School Board policy stipulates that school clothing shall exhibit good grooming standards and not distract from the educational process. The dress code will be enforced to ensure a school climate which is most conducive to educating and to learning. The guidelines for determining what is appropriate for school are simple. If the clothing is too short, tight, ragged, revealing, controversial, or unsafe, it will be deemed inappropriate for school.
