The responsibility for the dress and appearance of students shall rest with individual students and their parents and must also still meet reasonable or defined standards of health, safety and welfare of District students, visitors or employees. Student dress and appearance must be in accordance with the district Code of Conduct. The administration is authorized to take action in instances where individual dress does not meet these stated requirements.
While the school administration may require student participation in physical education classes to wear certain types of clothing (e.g. sneakers, socks, shorts, tee shirts), administrators or faculty may not prescribe a specific brand which students must wear. For special events or ceremonies such as inductions, dances, graduation or concerts, the administration may recommend or require appropriate attire to match the occasion.
Students may attend school and its related functions without restraint or discrimination as long as their attire and appearance meet the requirements described above.
