Uniforms for 2014-2015
The top priority of DeKalb County School District is to provide our students with the best positive learning experience in a safe environment. We work each day to encourage students to be successful at their job of learning. To this end, the "GREAT" Columbia Middle is pleased to have the support of the DeKalb County School District as we implement a mandatory uniformed dress code beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. We believe and research supports that uniformed dress: (1) has a positive impact on students’ learning and behavior in and around the school; (2) serves to unite students; (3) increases school pride; and (4) eliminates class barriers that develop when some students cannot afford expensive name-brand clothing.
