Dress Code
In the future as our school continues to grow, each grade level will be wearing a different color of shirt. For the 2012-13 school year, the 9th grade students will be wearing light blue shirts and black pants. In the coming years, students will only be able to purchase uniform shirts if they earned the proper number of credits to be in that grade level. The first uniform shirt will be provided for FREE by Smidt Tech.
  • 10th grade students will need 57.5 credits to advance to burgundy.
  • 11th grade students will need 115 credits to advance to the next color shirt.
  • 12th grade students will need 172.5 credits to advance to the next color shirt.

Students at each Alliance campus must adhere to a strict uniform policy.

Out-Of Uniform Consequences

Parents will be contacted immediately when their student is not adhering to the uniform policy described above. If a student is out of uniform, parents will be asked to bring the student a change of clothes before the student may return to class.

Students are expected to be responsible for coming to school in uniform prepared to learn and to check their own attire. Please be aware that all staff will conduct uniform checks routinely. Students who are not in compliance with the uniform policy will be dealt with on an individual basis by the administration.

All students whose attire is in violation of Dress Code policy face disciplinary action and depending on the severity of the violation, students may not be permitted to return to class until they have changed.
