School Uniforms

The Osceola County School Board will continue the following uniform policy for all
elementary, middle, and high school students for the 2013-2014 school year.

Navy blue or khaki pants, walking shorts, slacks, skirt, skorts, jumper, or similar clothing made of twill, corduroy, or blue denim fabric. (A small logo is acceptable)

White or navy blue shirts with collars such as a polo, oxford, or dress shirt (A small logo is acceptable)

Schools have the option of adding one or two shirt colors to reflect their school colors, and schools could permit students to wear school-sponsored T-shirts on Fridays or school spirit days that the school principal designates.

The new policy also includes the following:
**The size of shirts and pants must be appropriate to the student’s body size and not oversized or undersized.

**Shirts must be tucked into the waistband of the pants or skirt. Exceptions will be allowed in individual cases at the principal’s discretion.

**Pants or shorts with belt loops must be worn with a belt so that the waistband is worn at the waist and not below.

** The hem of the girls’ skirts or dresses must be no shorter than mid-thigh.

**Elementary and middle school students’ footwear must be closed toe and heel athletic shoes. High school students may also wear sandals provided they don’t interfere with the safety and welfare of the student and the school’s administration allows such. Platforms and shoes with wheels may not be worn.

**Clothing can be purchased from any retailer or vendor.

**School administrators have final authority to decide if clothing complies with the rules.

No student will be denied attendance at school or be penalized for failing to wear a school uniform due to financial hardship. Each school and School Advisory Council will be developing procedures and criteria to offer assistance to these students. Parents are asked to notify their school principal if assistance is needed.
