DRESS CODE- UNIFORM POLICY
A+ Children’s Academy Community School is focused on providing a quality education to all children. Therefore, A+ Children’s Academy will implement a uniform policy. Studies have shown that uniforms in school provide the following benefits:
- Decreases violence and theft because of clothing and shoes
- Instills discipline among students
- Reduces distractions for students
- Instills a sense of community
- Reduces peer pressure
- Increases the focus more on learning
