What are the yearbook picture requirements for my school? Every school has a policy for senior pictures that appear in their high school yearbook. Some schools have contracts that require that you use their photographer if you want to appear in their yearbook weather you like it or not. Other schools allow you to use any photographer as long as the picture meets particular requirements for yearbook publication. That might mean that girls are required to wear a "drape" and boys are required to wear a "tux" Here is a brief rundown of the high schools in our geographic area and their requirements for the yearbook picture:
Stroudsburg High School. Uses a contract photographer for much of their photography but allows students to provide their own pictures from other studios if they meet the requirements. Girls must wear a drape and boys must wear a tux. They must be photographed against a specific background. Bender Photography photographs many Stroudsburg students and can meet the yearbook requirements.
Pocono Mountain East High School. PME allows students to wear the clothes of their choice as long as it meets the school dress code. They want a head and shoulder shot. Their deadline is at the end of October of your senior year.
East Stroudsburg South High School. Yearbook requirements are the same as Stroudsburg High School's ~~ Drape for girls, tux for boys, specific background (which we have)
East Stroudsburg North
Pleasant Valley High School. PV requires that you use the photographer that they are contracted with if you wish to appear in their yearbook
Pocono Mountain West High School.
North Warren Regional High School. Bender Photography has a contract with North Warren to provide their yearbook photos. Girls must wear a drape and boys must wear a shirt and tie. Picture days are scheduled in June, usually the week after graduation. Students who can't be available during that time period may come to our studio or have them taken at a make-up day in the fall.

No matter what your school's yearbook picture policy is, you can have your personal senior pictures taken anywhere. Schools cannot force you to buy pictures taken by their contracted photographer. And in New Jersey schools cannot force you to use their photographer for the yearbook photo, either. Check out this law http://law.onecle.com/new-jersey/title-18a/18a-18a-49.3.html
