Dress Code

Dress Code

The Board of Education recognizes that responsibility for the dress and appearance of students generally rests with individual students and their parents, and that students may wish to express themselves by the manner of their dress and appearance. Students shall not, however, wear clothing or affect an appearance at school or school-sanctioned activities or events that are or will be disruptive to the educational environment. Districtwide standards on student attire are intended to help students concentrate on schoolwork, reduce discipline problems and improve school order and safety.  Students also shall not wear clothing or affect an appearance that compromises the maintenance of a safe and orderly school.Board Policy JICA outlines expectations for dress. The following general standards shall also apply:

  • Any manner of grooming or apparel, including clothing, jewelry, emblems and/or badges which by virtue of color, arrangement, trademark, or other attribute is associated with, or denotes membership in or affiliation with, any gang, is not allowed. The prohibition on gang-related apparel shall be applied at the discretion of building level administrators, after consultation with the superintendent or designee, as the need arises at individual schools.
