School Uniforms

KIPP Texas Public Schools’ student dress code supports equitable educational access and is written in a manner that does not reinforce stereotypes and that does not reinforce or increase marginalization or oppression of any group based on race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, household income or body type/size.

School Dress Code

The student dress code supports our goal of inspiring students to learn and focus on their academic excellence.

For the 2022-23 school year, KIPP Texas will implement a relaxed statewide policy. Students will be allowed to wear any KIPP collar shirt or t-shirt issued by the student’s current school. Students will also be allowed to wear khaki, blue or black pants, skirts, or shorts as long as the skirts or shorts are 3 inches above the knee or longer. Bottoms should be without holes, rips, or tears. Individual schools may have a policy regarding students wearing blue jeans, which will be communicated by your school; if your school does not communicate it, it is not permitted on that particular campus. Students may wear non-KIPP outerwear to school but must remove the outerwear and store it in a locker, backpack, or classroom while in the building. Students may wear KIPP branded sweatshirts or hooded sweatshirts inside the building. Students may not wear hoods or caps, and their faces must be visible.

Your school may provide you with the required shirts, which you may purchase at the school’s cost, or your school’s Office or Operations Manager will provide you with the uniform vendor’s name, price list, and/or website which will allow you to purchase the items directly from the vendor.

If you choose not to purchase uniform items using one of these options, you may choose to:

  • Contact the vendors which KIPP has an agreement to inquire if they can provide the required uniform items to you at their price. Please see your school for the vendor contact information.
  • Provide your own uniform items if they meet the same specification and standard as established by the school (e.g., color, logo, style, type, embroidery, etc.).

Please contact your school’s Office or Operations Manager for more information.
