the school environment. Appropriate student grooming and dress are primarily the responsibility
of the student and parent. However, in adopting a code of student dress, it is the intent of the
School Board to ensure that a student’s personal hygiene, appearance, or dress is such that it does
not disrupt or interfere with the educational process or endanger the health and safety of the
student or others.

alert to give helpful, friendly guidance in these matters without embarrassment to the pupil.

The OKALOOSA COUNTY CHOICE PROGRAM:
This program functions as a critical link in transitioning secondary students into successful high-skill, high-wage careers in the workforce and/or postsecondary opportunities. At the same time, CHOICE provides direction to high and middle school students through rigorous and relevant curriculum offerings. The CHOICE program is an innovative, award-winning program that allows students to earn high school credits, college credits, scholarships, and professional industry certifications, all at the same time and at no cost to the student.
As more and more jobs require advanced technical skills, employers are willing to pay higher wages to those with industry certifications. CHOICE provides the training and the opportunity for students to earn real-world skills which leads to more and better job opportunities whether the student attends college or goes directly into the workforce. CHOICE has been declared a model for career education by the US Department of Labor and has been the recipient of many awards. The program is now being replicated in many different counties across Florida.
There are currently thirteen CHOICE Institutes available in the county with more to follow in the coming years:
According to the Florida DOE, students completing rigorous career and technical education programs in 2010, 15 to 20 percent more students met the reading, math and science college-readiness goals of their states when compared with a matched sample of students who did not have a rigorous CTE experience.
