Dress Code

Dress Code
The dress and grooming of Rome City Public Schools students shall contribute to the health and safety of the individual, promote a positive educational environment and not disrupt the educational activities and processes of the school. These minimum standards of dress and grooming apply to all students (PK-12) in the public schools of the Rome City School District, unless a specific exemption is granted by the superintendent. Any request for an exemption shall be made to the superintendent.

Rome City School District views the Dress Code as a serious issue and expects parents to promote the observance of this policy. Building administrators have the final decision as to the appropriateness of all clothing and attire. Following are the guidelines for the students:

The following items of clothing shall not be permitted:

  • -underwear as outerwear

  • -underwear exposed at any time

  • -bare midriffs and sides when arms are extended over the head.

  • -clothing that is too tight or revealing

  • -jewelry that contains any type of sharp object

  • -hemlines of shorts, dresses, skirts and skorts shorter than mid-thigh

Building administrators have the final decision as to the appropriateness of all clothing and related issues.
