STUDENT DRESS CODE

 

In cooperation with teachers, students, and parents/guardians, the principal or designee may establish school rules
governing student dress and grooming which are consistent with law, Board policy, and administrative regulations.
These school dress codes shall be regularly reviewed.


The following guidelines shall apply to all regular school activities:


         1. Clothing, jewelry, and personal items shall be free of writing, pictures, or any other insignia which is vulgar,
         lewd, obscene, profane, or sexually suggestive or which promotes the use of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, or other
         illegal activity.


         2. Appropriate shoes must be worn at all times.


         3. Hats, caps, and other head coverings shall not be worn indoors.


         4. Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments. See-through tops and bare abdomens are prohibited.


The dress code shall be modified as appropriate to accommodate a student's religious or cultural observance, health
condition, or other circumstance deemed necessary by the principal or designee. In addition, the principal or
designee may impose dress requirements to accommodate the needs of special school activities, physical education
classes, athletic activities, and other extracurricular and cocurricular activities.


No grade of a student participating in a physical education class shall be adversely affected if the student does not
wear standardized physical education apparel because of circumstances beyond the student's control. (Education
Code 49066)


Students shall be allowed to wear sun-protective clothing, including but not limited to hats, for outdoor use during
the school day. (Education Code 35183.5)


Gang-Related Apparel


At individual schools that have a dress code prohibiting gang-related apparel at school or school activities, the
principal, staff, and parents/guardians participating in the development of the school safety plan shall define "gang related
apparel" and shall limit this definition to apparel that reasonably could be determined to threaten the health
and safety of the school environment if it were worn or displayed on a school campus. (Education Code 32282)
Because gang-related symbols are constantly changing, definitions of gang-related apparel shall be reviewed at least
once each semester and updated whenever related information is received. As necessary, the school shall collaborate
with law enforcement agencies to update definitions of gang-related apparel.
