Excerpt from the original dress code:
All students are expected to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to dress appropriately for school and school functions. All district personnel, including student teachers, should exemplify and reinforce acceptable student dress and help students develop an understanding of appropriate appearance in the school setting.
A student's dress, grooming and appearance shall be safe, appropriate and should not disrupt or interfere with the educational process. Students may not be excluded from regular instruction because of appearance if style, fashion or taste is the sole criterion for such exclusion.
School authorities may prohibit dress which is so distractive as to interfere with the learning process.
Students are not permitted to wear items that are vulgar, obscene, libelous or denigrate others on account of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or disability.
Extremely brief garments, see-through garments and the exposure of undergarments are not appropriate in an educational setting.
Clothing/Accessories may not promote and/or endorse the use of alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs and/or encourage other illegal or violent activities.
Each building principal or his or her designee shall be responsible for informing all students and their parents of the student dress code at the beginning of the school year and of any revisions to the dress code made during the school year.
Students who violate the student dress code shall be required to modify their appearance by covering or removing the offending item and, if necessary or practical, replacing it with an acceptable item of clothing.
