Is there a dress code?

The intent of Tulare Adult School is to prepare students for success in everyday life—especially work life. Thus, we require that students maintain a professional, work-appropriate appearance that is neat, clean, and in good repair. Specifically, we require our students

  • Wear jobsite standard shoes at all times and at all functions
  • Avoid gang or drug-affiliated clothing and accessories
  • Choose clothing that sufficiently covers the body (no bare midriffs, exposed undergarments, or see-through materials) and does not disrupt from the professional, learning atmosphere
  • Avoid jewelry and accessories that pose a personal danger to the wearer or have the ability to destroy property
