Steps to ensure attendance is addressed

Dress code

The Garland ISD school board has approved standardized dress for all Brandenburg students.  Standardized dress is made up of clothing that meets a particular description but is not a specific brand of clothing.  The dress and grooming codes outlined are not optional.  Students will be given disciplinary consequences if they do not follow the dress and grooming codes.  Spirit Dress can be worn on Friday's with jeans.

Cell phones

Students in Garland ISD now have the opportunity to bring their own personal electronic devices to school for educational purposes. With administrator and teacher approval, students may use their devices to access and save information from the Internet, to collaborate with other learners and to utilize the productivity tools available to them. If students do not adhere to the rules, the following consequences will be given:

  • First offense - Parent may retrieve phone without charge
  • Second and subsequent offenses - $15 charge for phone to be returned to parent
