A new dress code for Bemidji Area Schools


BEMIDJI—As the 2016-17 school year gets underway, students at Bemidji Area Schools will be subject to new dress code expectations.

The school board approved changes to the middle and high school handbooks, which now dictate that district middle and high school students shall not wear clothing shorter than four inches above their knees.

Bemidji High School and Bemidji Middle School had different dress expectations before the change. Brian Stefanich, the high school's principal, said the new, identical dress codes will be easier for district staff to enforce. The new policy indicates that the minimum length is the same as the shorter end of a typical sheet of paper folded lengthwise.
