DRESS CODE AND SCHOOL UNIFORMS
POLICYThe Board of Education recognizes that there is a positive relationship between appearance and the learning environment. Studies have shown that clothing can contribute to distractions or can contribute to improved learning among students.
Schools which wish to establish dress codes (including the adoption of uniform school attire) may do so provided that:
1. Clear evidence is presented that the decision represents the views of a majority of the members of the school community.
2. No undue financial burden is placed upon individuals and parents.
3. The Constitutional rights of individuals are respected.
4. The dress code provides a means whereby parents may request waivers.
