The Board of Trustees has adopted standardized dress policies for students in grades PK-5, and for junior high school students. There may be color and style variations from campus to campus, therefore parents should contact their child’s prospective school for details on the standardized dress requirements for their school.
The main purpose behind the standardized dress code is to improve student self-image, improve student discipline and focus on school work, increase the student’s sense of belonging and school pride/spirit, as well as increase the safety and security at the campuses.
This following illustrates some of the clothing that is and is not acceptable at Mission CISD schools. It is a general guide and does not represent the entire Dress Code. For the dress code policy and a more complete list of acceptable attire please log on to
