Dress Code Violation Penalty

In-school suspension? Wait in the office for your parents to bring appropriate clothes? How about a jumpsuit?

Update: It's hard to disagree with this observation:

What these adults didn't factor in, was the students are clever and love the idea of "organized chaos." I PROMISE you, on day one of school, nearly 2/3 of the student body will intentionally arrive out of dress code, forcing the administration to realize they don't have enough jump suits. Those who are "lucky" enough to wear one will think it's cool and it will almost become trendy.

The students may not know anything, but they're not stupid.

My school has required a "Dress Code Violator" t-shirt for several years (shirts and blouses are our major problem), so i don't have a problem with this solution.

In fact, I regularly suggest to my students (tongue planted firmly in cheek) that the school should impose a jumpsuit as a school uniform -- school name stenciled across the back, student's name and student number on the front. When they say it sounds like jail, I tell them that such a uniform would be great vocational training for their "cool" classmates who refuse to abide by the dress code.
