Uniform Information PDF Print E-mail

Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy (BDJ) is a uniform school. As such, we need the cooperation of every parent to assure all scholars wear the correct uniform all year long. BDJ uniforms ensure the school climate is as supportive as possible to the instructional program. The BCPSS Student Code of Conduct defines a School Uniform Policy as "a mandatory school-based uniform policy is one in which the school prescribes a standard uniform and requires all students to participate."

The Dress Code represents a cooperative effort between the BCPS Board of Directors, the CEO, school principals, and the students of City Schools. Clothing style may not disrupt other scholars and as such the Board of Directors of BDJ has implemented a dress code policy for all scholars attending BDJ.

Uniform Requirements from October through June are as follows for ALL SCHOLARS:

  • Shirts – All scholars are to wear white collared dress shirts (short or long sleeve), tucked in all day
  • Tie – All scholars are to wear the navy and yellow Bluford necktie
  • Navy BDJ Blazer – All scholars 7th through 10th grades are to wear a navy blazer all day
    • 8th grade and above must wear the BDJ emblem on their blazer
  • Cardigan or Sweater Vest – All 6th grade scholars are to wear sweaters over their dress shirts all day
  • Pants – All scholars are to wear khaki pants all day
  • Belt – All Scholars are to wear a black or dark brown belt daily
  • Shoes – All Scholars are to wear black or dark brown leather, soft-soled shoes all day

Uniform Requirements from July through September are as follows for ALL SCHOLARS:

  • Shirts – All scholars are to BDJ Golf shirts tucked in all day
    • Middle School - Yellow Golf Shirts w/ Blue logo
    • High School - Navy Golf Shirts w/ Yellow logo
  • Pants – All scholars are to wear beige khaki pants all day
  • Belt – All Scholars are to wear a black or dark brown belt daily
  • Shoes – All Scholars are to wear black or dark brown leather, soft-soled shoes all day

Parents are strongly encouraged to remind their scholars of the above requirements. School uniforms ensure the school climate is as supportive as possible to the instructional program. Additionally, this ensures clothing is not disruptive or excessively distracting to other scholars. Violators of the BDJ School Uniform policy will be subjected to the appropriate levels of intervention and disciplinary responses. The following are some violations of the school uniform policy:

  • Wearing sneakers or tennis shoes is not permitted except during Physical Education class only
  • Hooded attire is not to be worn during the school day or school activities
  • Cargo Pants (pockets on the sides) are not to be worn

NOTE: If there are issues with obtaining uniforms, parents or guardians should contact the school.

Additionally, scholars not in proper uniform are risk not being eligible to attend trips and participating in co/extra-curricular activities. We reserve the right to ask scholars to change into an appropriate uniform until the end of the day. If a scholar refuses, he/she may receive disciplinary actions.
