SSUSD School Board Policy

Students will wear clothing appropriate for the promotion of an effective educational program which provides for student safety and health and avoids distraction to the educational process. A student who goes to school without meeting minimum guidelines or without proper attention having been given to personal cleanliness or neatness of dress may be sent home to be properly prepared for school, or shall be required to prepare him/herself for the school room before entering.

The school is responsible for providing a positive atmosphere where all children will be able to learn. Students and their parents/guardians need to help create and maintain this atmosphere.

The following minimum guidelines shall be followed in determining appropriateness of dress for students:

1. Revealing or excessively short garments including bare midriffs shall not be worn. Clothing shall be worn at an appropriate length for sitting and bending, as well as standing. Appropriate length is defined as that which does not reveal undergarments or the posterior.

2. Articles displaying vulgar words, symbols, pictures, or derogatory remarks which are contrary to a positive educational climate shall not be worn.

3. Bare feet or shoes that do not hold both the front part of the foot and the heel securely to the sole shall not be permitted.

4. Extremely tight fitting garments, backless halters, and strapless tops or dresses shall not be worn.

Determination of meeting these minimum guidelines will be made by site administration in accordance with the needs at each site.
