Mission CISD standardized dress required at elementary and junior high schools

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.
