Uniform Policy

We take great pride in being one of Darlington County's uniform schools and need for each parent and student to understand the guidelines and that the policy will be strictly enforced on a daily basis.

FINANCIAL HARDSHIP

No student shall be denied attendance at Brockington or penalized for failure to wear a uniform for reason of financial hardship. The school shall make efforts to assist parents who cannot afford uniforms by the following procedures:

· Any parent in need of financial assistance shall notify the school. The need must be clearly established with the principal or his/her designee, as the school is not expected to incur the parental responsibility of providing school clothing for students.
· The school shall work with staff, the local school community, and business partners to identify resources for assisting families.
· The PTO or other school volunteers may be asked to coordinate the effort to provide needed assistance.

 
DISCIPLINARY ACTION

· Prior to initiating any disciplinary action against a student not complying with the Uniform Dress Code, a conference with the parent will be held to solicit parental cooperation and support.
· No students shall be considered non-compliant when they wear the uniform of a nationally recognized youth organization such as the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts on a regular meeting day.
· Without exception, violations of the Uniform Dress Code will be handled at the discretion of and in a manner determined by individual teacher, school administration, and/or School Leadership Team. Any appeals regarding specific disciplinary action related to Uniform Dress code violations may be handled by parents addressing in writing to the School Leadership Team, whose decision is final.
