Part of the educational process for students is learning to dress appropriately
and behave responsibly in a variety of situations. Students are expected to dress in a manner appropriate to the school environment and which does not cause disruption to the academic process. Research has shown a correlation between appearance and behavior, especially in the school setting.
The Whitehall City School District requires standard dress for students in grades 6-12 in order to:
1. Improve relations by decreasing conflicts over clothing between students, staff and parents.
2. Promote a serious atmosphere for learning.
3. Promote campus safety and security. 4. Promote a sense of school spirit and community.
