TLA Student Dress CodeThank you for your commitment to The Learning Academy dress-code policy. The Learning Academy recognizes that some students with autism may have difficulty wearing clothing that is uncomfortable or non-preferred. However, staying true to our school’s mission of “preparation for life after school”, we are also aware that many companies, businesses, and adult training sitesrequire uniforms and/or follow specific dress codes. It is our goal to prepare our students to be able to go into the community by overcoming these clothing sensitivities and routines. All students are required to wear the following while at TLA:Solid colored shirts with a collar and sleeves. Sleeve length, color shade and fabric are your choice.Solid colored pants, dress shorts, skirts, etc. Color shade and fabric are your choice. Shorts and skirts length should be no more than 2 inches above the knee.Closed-toed shoes (sneakers are ok except on specific vocational outings). No sandals, or flipflops.During the school year, there may be exceptions to this dress code. These will be announced in advance.
