Dress Code

 

The primary objective of the Redford Union School District and the ADT program is to provide a safe and quality educational environment which meets the needs of students of all ages, abilities, and aspirations, enabling them to become independent, life-long learners and contributing members of society. In order to minimize the possible distractions that could impede the learning process, Stuckey Center-ADT has implemented a school wide dress code.

The rationale for the Dress Code is based on the following:

• To increase focus on the learning process.

• To increase safety – an outsider/anyone with inappropriate attire would be easier to distinguish.

• To increase school spirit and pride.

• To reduce social distractions that inhibit the learning process; students should focus on learning, especially during school hours.

In sum, the Dress Code is designed to encourage students to dress appropriately for school, minimize distractions, and promote school pride.
