Agenda Item: VI.O.

Consider/Approve Amendment to Board Policy #6.310 – Standard Dress Code

Background Information:

An amendment to Board Policy #6.310 – Standard Dress Code will allow students to wear polo shirts untucked on a daily basis as well as school spirit shirts untucked on “special days” designated by the school principal. Shirt length and size must conform to standard dress code criteria which states that all clothing must be sized to fit and shirt length must reach at least the top of the rear pocket and cannot extend beyond the bottom of the rear pocket. The School Board reserves the right to review and rescind this amendment to the dress code policy at any time that it is determined the provisions create an environment that is distractive and/or counterproductive to the teaching and learning mission and general operation of the school system. The Board’s current policy is included for your reference.

Staff Recommendation:

I recommend approval of the above-noted amendment to Board Policy #6.310 on the first reading.
