Tiegerman Dress Code


TIEGERMAN recognizes the importance of preparing our students for the rigorous world of work and post-secondary opportunities.  The New York State Education Department has set forth the Career and Development Occupational Studies (CDOS) credential requiring work related activities in school and the community.  All schools in New York City will be competing to obtain job training opportunities for their students.  How our students appear and present themselves will be critical to the ultimate success at acquiring placement opportunities to meet their work based learning hours for this credential.  We want to give our students the best chance:  Dress for Success!
