2015-16 Student Dress Code Policy
Please find attached the Grady H.S. dress code for the 2015-2016 school year. After receiving concerns from various students and parents, Grady’s administration collaborated with Grady students this summer to revise Grady’s dress code guidelines. Selected parents were also invited to collaborate at two meetings, but were unable to attend. Please note that any terminology including “disruptive” or “distracting” has been removed from the Grady Dress code language. Also, please note that the consequences for dress code violations are progressive, but reasonable. We ask for your support in this matter. Have a great week.

Grady Cluster Adopts College-Career Prep
The Grady Cluster Planning Committee was charged with determining a signature theme for our cluster. The final choice, made unanimously by the committee and based upon the experience of our principals and community feedback, was College and Career Preparatory. The presentation from the May 13 community meeting at Jackson High School explains why this decision was made and next steps. This choice was made with the desire to have the flexibility to build upon our cluster's strengths and to close gaps more quickly by not completely starting over. By creating our own framework the committee believes we will be able to use our new and future allocated cluster resources more efficiently to drive more impact in the classrooms. The specifics of the framework are being developed but will incorporate concepts and best practices of IB and STEM/STEAM, as well as build upon our already successful AP, CTAE, and arts programs.
