Alba-Golden I.S.D. has a goal for all students to
demonstrate good grooming and pride in appearance. To insure success, as a student, dress should
not distract from learning, attract undue attention, or be exotic in nature. The collaborative efforts of the Site Based

assist us in establishing a positive learning environment.

TO THE SCHOOL POLICY AND WILL BE REFERRED TO THE OFFICE AND BE SENT HOME.
When a student is
sent to the office to either take care of the violation on campus or off
campus, the result will be an unexcused absence for the class that is
missed. A student that chooses to leave
campus will have an unexcused absence while off campus. If the student does not come back to school
in due time, this is considered "skipping" and additional disciplinary action
will be taken. The discipline action
