Dress Code Highlights

LCSD Dress Code as established in the Student Code of Conduct

The Florida SouthWestern Collegiate High School – Lee Campus dress code is designed to maximize student choice while minimizing disruptions to the academic learning environment caused by distracting dress and potentially negative staff/student interactions. Students and families are highly encouraged to make conservative choices when purchasing school clothes and dressing to attend school each day.

Questionable issues will be resolved by a school Administrator who will retain final authority on what is or isn’t acceptable. The basic Lee County School District student dress code is listed below and clarifying statements can be found highlighted on this page.
