Dress and Grooming (All Grade Levels)
The district’s dress code teaches grooming and hygiene, prevents disruption, and minimizes safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following:
Prohibited clothing includes:
- Promotions or advertises violence, illegal drugs, alcohol, gangs, hate speech, profanity or pornography
- Images or language that creates a hostile or intimidating environment based on any protected class or consistently marginalized group
Campuses may impose additional limitations on clothing and will communicate those rules to parents and students at the beginning of the school year and keep them posted to the campus websites throughout the year.
If the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’s dress code, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school and return to the classroom. If the problem cannot be corrected at school, the principal will work with the student and parent to obtain an acceptable change of clothing for the student in a way that minimizes loss of instructional time.
Repeated or severe offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
