DRESS CODE

Students are expected to be neat, well groomed, and appropriately dressed for school.  The Nacogdoches Independent School District (NISD) believes that an individual’s dress and grooming habits directly affect his/her behavior, attitude, and performance.  Therefore, the intent of the NISD dress code is to bring out the very best in the student body because student pride is a key factor to academic success.

Any style of dress or grooming which distracts from the instructional process is not acceptable.
