It's official! We have moved to our new District website, now located at acpsd.net. Please take a moment to visit and explore our new online home for updated information on all items related to Aiken County Public Schools.
 
As a reminder, our individual school web pages will continue to link back to School Fusion (hosted at this site) until the start of the new school year when all school-related pages will make the transition to our new web platform.
 
Thank you for your continued interest in and support of Aiken County Public Schools, and welcome to acpsd.net!

3. HAIR STYLES AND COLORS

All students are asked to refrain from hair styles/colors

that are potentially distracting in a school setting (any

action related to hair styles/colors is at the discretion of

administration).

NOTE: The administration will make the final judgment

on the appropriateness of clothing and/or appearance and

reserves the right to prohibit students from wearing any

articles of clothing or other items which lead to, or may

foreseeably result in, the disruption of or interference with

the school environment. In the event the administration

determines a student’s dress is inappropriate for school in

accordance with this policy, the administration will

require the student to change and will inform the student

not to wear the garment to school again. Repeated

violations of the Dress Code will be addressed as outlined


in the District’s Behavior Code.
