Uniform Policy

In order to create a consistent and safe environment that is free of distractions, Imagine Discovery Public Charter School has instituted a uniform dress code for all students. We believe that a higher standard of dress encourages greater respect for individuals, students and others, and results in a higher standard of behavior. In other words, students who come to school dressed properly will excel academically and conduct themselves appropriately while at school.

This belief is supported by research into the benefits of uniforms, though conventional wisdom suggests that mandatory uniform policies benefit students on specific behavioral issues (attendance and self control) and academic outcomes. Uniform policies also affect school environments and student outcomes by providing a visible and public symbol of commitment to school improvement and reform.

All required uniform items with logo’s – dress shirts, sweaters, etc. — must be purchased from our vendor, the Dennis Uniform Company because they will bear an official Imagine Discovery logo that is specific to our school. You may order uniforms by visiting the store, located at 1110-C North Rolling Road, Catonsville, MD 21228  or by calling (410) 869-4682.

A list of uniform items that are required, with and with out logos can be downloaded .

Imagine Discovery will provide limited, need-based assistance with uniform costs. Applications for uniform assistance will be available in July.

All parents must understand and agree with the dress code prior to the opening of school. Students are expected to be in their school uniforms on the first day of school. The complete school uniform policy can be found in the Parent Handbook.
