The Newark Tech Campus Uniform Student Dress Code was implemented to maintain a safe, respectful, and positive learning environment and to model good citizenship. All clothing should be appropriate to a school setting and weather conditions. Students are required to use good judgment, to respect themselves and others, and to demonstrate modesty in selecting attire. Both students and parents share the responsibility for the student's attire because clothing often sets the tone for academics and behavior. The school administration has the authority to determine if a student is wearing attire that is appropriate for a school setting and if not deny admission on that day or until which time appropriate clothing is acquired.
Please note that failure to adhere to the uniform policy will prohibit students from entering school/classes and will result in disciplinary action. Kids Place and Flynn & O'Hara are the official uniform vendors for Newark Tech.
Physical Education (PE) students are required to wear the uniform purchased during Freshman Orientation. Replacement uniforms are available for purchase for all grade levels in the main office. NOTE: Athletic shorts may not be worn in school outside of the gym.
