10.23.P.1 Student Dress

Section 10.23 - Policy


Dysart Unified School District believes that there is a connection between student dress and academic success.  As such, any attire that detracts from the learning environment is not acceptable.  Students should dress in a manner that takes into consideration the educational environment, safety, health and welfare of oneself and others.  

Dress code will be reviewed annually by a committee of students, staff, parents and community members.  Revisions to the dress code will be communicated by means of the district website, school websites and Student Handbook.

Dress code violations will be handled in accordance with the Discipline Matrix.  School administrators will be allowed the final decision when applying the guidelines to student appearance standards.

Exceptions for special activities or health considerations may be preapproved by the administrator.

Students who volunteer for extracurricular activities, such as athletics, band, chorus, et cetera, are subject to the standards of dress as defined by the sponsors of such activities.

Personal Protective Equipment
If required by Government authorities, all persons including but not limited to staff, students, vendors, visitors and volunteers shall wear appropriate personal protective equipment while on any District property, in any District facility, at any District event, whether indoors or outdoors, and in any District vehicle, including District buses or vehicles rented or leased by the District.

Appropriate personal protective equipment should not be worn by:
  • Children under the age of 2
  • Anyone who has trouble breathing
  • Anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

The Superintendent may make exceptions to the requirement to wear appropriate personal protective equipment while keeping in mind the health and safety of everyone involved.
