Dress Code


2018-2019 Student Dress Code


Bailey Middle School students will adhere to the AISD Dress Code Policy approved in 2004. The goal of these guidelines is to ensure a safe, respectful, and positive learning environment and to model good citizenship. All clothing should be appropriate to the student's age, school setting, and weather conditions.

Both students and parents share the responsibility for the student's attire, however the campus administrator has the final authority concerning appropriateness of any item worn at school.  Students are required to use good judgement, to respect themselves and others, and to demonstrate modesty in selecting attire.  

The District provides a Middle School dress code for all AISD campuses, and students will be expected to comply with the District's code. (Individual campuses may adopt additional guidelines.*)
