Dress Code


    Alief ISD takes pride in the appearance of our students. The district’s
    dress code is established to promote grooming and hygiene, to
    prevent disruption, and to minimize safety hazards. All students shall
    wear clothing that is neat, modest, and complies with the Alief ISD
    standards for dress and grooming as these are contributing factors
    to a positive learning environment.

    Students who violate the school’s dress code will be afforded an
    opportunity to correct the problem at school. Repeated offenses of
    dress code violations may result in disciplinary actions or
    consequences in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
