Consequences to Violating the Dress Code
The standard consequence for violating any of CAWNY's rules is detailed in the Parent/Student Handbook, under the heading, Code of Conduct. However, the dress code has its own additional consequences as detailed below:
In order to maximize all students' progress in each class and to minimize the distraction of dress code violations, the following plan will be enacted after a student is reminded that they should already be in dress code.
1 - if the student gets into dress code, they will be sent back to class and given the appropriate level of discipline (as detailed in the Parent/Student Handbook), to be determined by their number of dress code violations.
2 - if the student is not able to get into dress code, they will be given clothes to wear. They will be sent to class and given the appropriate level of discipline (as detailed in the Parent/Student Handbook), to be determined by their number of dress code violations.
3 - if the student refuses to comply, they will sit in a Principal-approved location to do school work until they are willing to comply. Parents/Guardians will be contacted in order to help the student get into dress code and back to class as soon as possible. The student will be given the appropriate level of discipline (as detailed in the Parent/Student Handbook), to be determined by their number of dress code violations.
