Academically Dressed Clothing Policy
Guidelines for grades K- 8 and Harvey High School Dress Code

"Academically Dressed "Guidelines

Beginning in 2007, the Painesville City Local School District implemented the "Academically Dressed" program  in all schools under Board of Education policy 5111.01. The rationale for implementing the dress code throughout the district is based on a number of factors.

  • Research suggests that an academic dress code has a positive effect on student behavior, achievement and self-esteem.
  • The Board of Education believes that a neat and orderly appearance is a positive factor for school safety and academic success.

The Academically Dressed Brochure for grades K-8 will provide you with information necessary to assist students and parents in understanding the  K-8 "Academically Dressed" program. You will find descriptions of acceptable clothing and resources for shopping for clothing that is reasonably priced and meets the new standard. Additional information is available by calling 440.392.5060. The brochure is available by clicking the link in the right margin. 

The Harvey High School Academic Dress Guidelines  vary slightly from the elementary and middle school guidelines. These guidlines can be accessed by clicking on the link for Harvey High School Academic Dress Guidelines in the right margin.
