Dress Code Policy
The Paulsboro Board of Education has adopted a mandatory school dress code policy for students in grades Pre-K through twelfth. It is firmly believed that young people who are safe and secure, who learn basic American values, and the essentials of good citizenship, are better students. Parents, teachers, and school officials have come to see a school dress code as one positive and creative way to reduce discipline problems, prevent future discipline problems from occurring, and increase school safety.
It has been observed that the adoption of a mandatory school dress code can promote school safety, improve discipline, and enhance the learning environment. The Paulsboro Board of Education strongly believes that the following issues would support such a school dress code policy:
A. An adopted school dress code will create security through identification, enabling school officials to recognize intruders.
B. A more positive atmosphere conducive to education will be established.
C. Similar clothing will eliminate peer pressure dealing with student attire.
D. The dress code will promote a statement of identity.
E. A sense of school unity will be created.
F. Students will be instilled with discipline.
G. School spirit will be enhanced.
H. The dress code will help assist families with the economic burden of clothing school age children since following the dress code is less costly.
The Paulsboro Board of Education believes that personal appearance of an individual begins with tasteful dress, cleanliness, and common sense. Appropriate dress is instrumental in creating a feeling of pride on the part of Paulsboro students resulting in better behavior, greater school spirit, and higher academic achievement.
The following guidelines must be met:
A. All clothing must be neat, clean, and modest. Clothing which leaves the midriff, back or shoulders exposed shall not be worn. Any clothing which is so tight as to be form fitting is immodest and prohibited. Pants must be worn at the waist.
B. Garments or accessories imprinted with the following detract from the educational process and therefore are prohibited:
1. Double meaning
2. Crude phrases or drawings
3. Profanity or sexual references
4. Slogans or drawings advocating violence
C. The following items are prohibited from being worn during school hours:
1. Hats, head bands, bandanas, picks, combs, curlers, hoods, and other head coverings
2. Undergarments worn as outer garments
3. Sunglasses, unless medically approved by a physician
4. Metal/rope chains, spikes, or related items
D. Hats are to be removed before entering the building and are not to be put back on until after students leave the building.
E. Shoes must be worn at all times in school. Shoes do not include flip-flops or slippers. Sandals, secured with back strap, and sneakers are acceptable except where they interfere with safety standards. (Science labs, wood shops, etc.)
F. Coats and/or other outer clothing are not to be worn in school, including the cafeteria.
G. Students must change before and after physical education classes.
H. The dress code also applies when participating in a school-sponsored activity, during regular school hours.
I. Not all circumstances are necessarily covered by this dress code. Teachers who have any doubt regarding the attire of a student should send the student to an administrator for clarification.

Acceptable Computer Use Procedure
The information super highway is a reality. From your school you can travel all over the world to gather information and communicate with others. The Paulsboro Public School Network (PPS-Net) along with the Internet represent powerful educational resources that allow you to find information anywhere in the world. You can connect to businesses, major universities, national libraries, other information sources as well as to other schools and students around the world.
There are rules for acceptable behavior. Likewise, there are correct procedures that govern the use of information networks. If you do not follow these guidelines, you may lose your access privileges.
PPS-Net and Internet Appropriate Use Policy
Following is a list of guidelines which, if disregarded, will lead to disciplinary action and/or suspension or limitation of network access privileges:
· PPS-Net is intended only for educational purposes and for the business and administrative functions directly in support of the Paulsboro Public Schools’ operation.
· Network services, and access to these services, shall only be used by authorized persons.
· Where password protected accounts are used, network users are personally responsible for all activity that occurs within their account.
· When interacting with other users on PPS-Net or the Internet, users will conduct themselves in a responsible, ethical, and polite manner. Users may not:
· Violate, or attempt to violate, the security of district computers, data or network equipment or services;
· Use PPS-Net for illegal or inappropriate purposes or in support of such activities, or transmit any materials in violation of Federal, state or local laws;
· Duplicate, store, or transmit copyrighted material that violates copyright law;
· View, duplicate, store, or transmit files containing adult or pornographic content, no matter what the source of that file may be;
· Use PPS-Net for business purposes or anything else not related to the individual's position in the Paulsboro Public Schools;
· Commit plagiarism;
· Transmit or post threatening, abusive, obscene or harassing material or use abusive, vulgar,

· Users are advised that PPS-Net and individual computers and all files stored on same are
District property and may be inspected or monitored at any time.
· This policy applies whether PPS-Net access is gained from within or out-of-school settings.
· Individuals violating this policy shall be subject to full prosecution and legal consequences
provided by law and, in the case of students, other appropriate disciplinary action.
About The Internet
The Internet is a “public place.” You must always remember that you are sharing this space with
many other users who are interacting across the network at the same time. Your actions can be
“seen” by others. If you use a particular service it is likely that someone knows the connections
that you are making, knows about the computer software that you are using and knows what you
You are expected to use the Internet to pursue intellectual activities, seek resources, access
libraries and other types of learning activities. As you explore this new space there are two
cautions to keep in mind.
When using the Internet for research remember not to commit plagiarism. Plagiarism is “taking
ideas or writings from another person and offering them as your own.” When cutting and pasting
ideas into your own document this is very easy to do by accident. Credit should always be given
to the person who created the article or idea. The student who leads readers to believe that what
they are reading is the student’s own work when it is not is guilty of plagiarism.
For your own safety and for the safety of others, remember to exercise caution when you are
communicating with people anywhere. Do not give out your home phone number or your
address to anyone. If you feel there is a problem or if you feel uncomfortable with the
information someone is giving you, tell your teacher immediately. When you are communicating
with others, keep the following in mind:
· You cannot see them;
· You cannot tell how old they are or even what gender they are;
· They can tell you anything and you cannot always be sure what they are telling you is true; and
· Absolute privacy cannot be guaranteed in a network environment so, you need to think carefully about what you say and how you say it.
Though PPS-Net e-mail accounts are not provided for students, such accounts are readily available via “Portal” sites such as Yahoo! and Excite. Here are some suggested do’s and don’ts for the use of e-mail.
· Make your subject line as descriptive as possible.
· Always include a salutation before your message.
· Always give your name and tell where you are from.
· Always restate or describe the question that you are answering or the issue on which you are commenting.
· Don’t send personal messages on conferences, bulletin boards or digests.
· Don’t expect an answer in less than 2 or 3 days.
· When sending a file, give as much information as possible: length, type, contents.
· Don’t be vulgar or offensive. Electronic text allows no context clues to convey shades of irony, sarcasm, or harmless humor.
· Do not send or receive messages that discriminate based on gender, race, color, religion, ethnic or national origin, political beliefs, marital status, age, sexual orientation, social and family background, linguistic preference, or disability.
· Don’t publicly criticize other users.
· Protect others’ privacy.
· Observe standard copyright restrictions.
· Be careful not to spread computer viruses.
About Student Accounts
There are two types of student accounts, the general student account and the personal student account.
General Student Account - All students without personal accounts use PPS-Net by logging on with the general student account. To log on with the general student account use “pps” for both the “user name” and “password”.
Personal Student Account - A personal student account is a password-protected directory on the network accessible only by that student and appropriate school personnel. Personal student accounts are accessible by the student from any PPS-Net computer. This accessibility allows the student to begin working on an assignment in one classroom, close the file and then open it again in another classroom to continue working. No floppy disks are needed. Finished work as well as work-in-progress may be stored in the directory.
Middle and High School students wishing a Personal Student Account may request one via the PPS-Net Internet Site.
