dress has been shown to influence behavior and the learning
environment. It is expected that all students shall wear clothes that
are clean, neat, appropriate, safe and not disruptive to the teaching
and learning process.
may not wear, display, or be in possession of clothing and/or
accessories which are interpreted by school personnel to be negative,
derogatory, or inappropriate. This includes clothing and/or accessories
that indicate association with a group (gang) which is determined to be
detrimental to the safety and well-being of the school community.
wearing of clothing and/or adornment that advertises or otherwise
promotes the use and/or abuse of alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, sexual
innuendos or gang involvement is prohibited on school grounds and at
school activities on or off campus.
this reason, the Board of Education finds that regulation of student
dress in general and gang-related apparel in particular is necessary to
protect the health and safety of students and staff.
