"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.
