SCHOOL DRESS CODE (REQUIRED AT EVERY SCHOOL) (POLICY JICA)

Acceptable school dress is neat, clean and appropriate. While the school cannot and does not dictate styles, it is expected that students will abide by the following rules demonstrating appropriateness in dress as though this were their daily place of business.

 Shoes must be worn in school.

 Hats and sunglasses may be worn outside in the sun for an extended period of time for protection from the sun. A principal in collaboration with School Safety may institute stricter requirements at a high school experiencing safety-related issues.

 Dark glasses may not be worn inside buildings unless a documented health problem exists.

 No gang related apparel or items are allowed (e.g., “wearing colors known to be affiliated with a particular gang, or wearing clothing with illustrations of known gang signs or symbols”).

 Students may not wear clothing or accessories in school buildings or on school grounds that are:

o Hazardous, damaging, or presenting danger to school property or persons including but not limited to: extended belts (belts should fit proper length), choke chains, dog collars, wallet chains or any type of spiked apparel or jewelry;

o Depicting and/or promoting and/or endorsing illegal or violent activities, illegal drugs, tobacco, or alcohol;

o Vulgar, obscene, indecent, libelous, or degrading of others on the basis of race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation or disability; and/or

o Distracting so as to interfere with the teaching or learning process such as extremely revealing garments including but not limited to short shorts, short skirts, short dresses (must cover buttocks while standing and sitting), tube tops, net tops, swimsuits, strapless tops, spaghetti strap tops, halter tops, muscle shirts, basketball shirts without an accompanying T-shirt, no tights to be worn as pants, garments with plunging necklines, transparent and see through garments, (midsections must be covered and undergarments shall be completely covered with outer clothing).

 

Students who violate standards may be asked to do any of the following depending on circumstances:

 Turn inappropriate clothing inside out.

 Change into clothing that may be provided by the school.

 Change into other clothing which has been brought to school.

 Remove the jewelry or other accessory.

 

*NOTE ON SCHOOL DRESS CODES: The above-stated guidelines represent minimum standards. Individual schools may adopt additional guidelines, but may not apply exclusionary discipline without first giving the student an opportunity to address the alleged violation. Students wearing inappropriate clothing are given an opportunity to change clothing or they will be released from school in the company of the parent/guardian. Students who are unable to comply with the dress code may access TUSD’s clothing bank (520) 232-7058.
