School Uniforms: Why They Work at Nevitt
A safe and disciplined learning environment is the first requirement of a good school. Young people who are safe and secure, who learn basic American values and the essentials of good citizenship, are better students.
Parents and teachers at Nevitt have observed that the adoption of our school uniform policy promotes school safety, improves discipline, and enhances the learning environment. The benefits of school uniforms include:
- decreasing violence and theft among students over designer clothing;
- helping prevent gang related colors and insignia at school;
- instilling students with discipline;
- helping parents and students resist peer pressure;
- helping students concentrate on their school work; and
- helping school officials recognize intruders who come to the school.
Enforcing the uniform dress code policy
Teachers will check for compliance with the uniform policy daily.
The teacher will review the policy with all students at the beginning of the year, whenever new students arrive, and periodically as needed to ensure student understanding.
If a child is not following the uniform dress code policy, the school will provide the child with the proper attire. Parents of students in violation of the policy may be notified if repeated violations occur.
Students newly registered who don’t come in uniform may be offered the use of a school uniform for the day, but are expected to comply at that time.
