Dress Code Due Process
The purpose of the Bradford County School District (BCSD) dress code is to define what is deemed acceptable wear by the Bradford County School Board. Dress codes are something that all students will encounter within the workforce and the BCSD dress code is preparing students to not only have a dress code, but to adhere to that dress code in order to maintain employment within the workforce. There is also a great deal of research that has shown the benefits of dressing for success by both students and adults within the workforce.
