School Dress Code
For information related to the personal appearance of students, please read School Board Policy 504.2.
Personal Appearance of Students
The Board believes inappropriate student appearance causes material and substantial disruption to the school environment or presents a threat to the health and safety of students, employees and visitors. While the primary responsibility for appearance lies with the students and their parents, appearance disruptive to the education program will not be tolerated. When in the judgment of a principal a student’s appearance or mode of dress disrupts the educational process or constitutes a threat to health or safety, the student may be required to make modifications.
Students are expected to adhere to standards of cleanliness and dress that are compatible with the requirements of a good learning environment. The Board expects students to be clean and well-groomed and wear clothes in good repair and appropriate for the time, place, and occasion.
The following items are prohibited in school buildings:
Any item of clothing that disrupts the learning process
Clothing that promotes illegal products or acts (including those illegal to minors)
Clothing that contains explicit violent or suggestive sexual content
Clothing that is deemed obscene or profane
It is the responsibility of the Superintendent or superintendent’s designee, in conjunction with the principals, to develop administrative regulations regarding this policy so the standards will be consistent across the District.
