• Student Dress Codes for District 6 Schools

    There are two dress codes in effect within District 6, a Universal Student Dress Code that applies to all students in all schools, and an Enhanced Dress Code that applies only to specific schools.

    Dress Code for All Schools

    All students are expected to adhere to the district’s Universal Student Dress Code (Board of Education Policy, section JICA):

    • Any clothing item or accessory that causes a disruption to school safety, personal safety and/or the learning environment may result in discretionary intervention by school administrators.
    • Tattoos, clothing or accessories that display drugs, sexual innuendos, inappropriate language, alcohol, tobacco products or gang connotations are not permitted. Tattoos displaying any of these must be covered at all times.
    • No hats are permitted inside of the school building during the school day. If “hoodies” are worn, the hood may not be worn inside of the school. (Religious headwear is an exception.)
    • Sunglasses or dark glasses, absent a verified medical condition, are not to be worn or displayed inside of the school building.
    • Trench coats are not permitted anywhere on school property.
    • Soled shoes or sandals must be worn at all times (for example, no “bedroom” slippers or similar footwear.)
    • Undergarments are not to be exposed.
    • Inappropriately sheer, tight or low cut clothing that bare or expose traditionally private parts of the body including, but not limited to, the stomach, buttocks, back, breasts or cleavage is not permitted.
    • No shaved or notched eyebrows (absent a verified medical condition).
    • No red or blue belts or shoelaces.
    • No team jerseys or belt buckles that display the numbers 13, 14, 18, 31, 41 or 81.
    • No solid red or solid blue shirts (other than designated school uniforms).
    • No red or blue “Dickies” or “Southpole” brand pants, shorts or shirts.
    • No red or blue bandana or any color bandana that is draped on clothing or hanging out of a pocket.
     
    Enhanced Dress Code for Specific Schools
     
    Background
    Some schools in District 6 have individually chosen to have a more detailed and prescriptive dress code, in addition to the districtwide Universal Student Dress Code. The enhanced dress code is also sometimes called a “school uniform.”

    Schools following the enhanced dress code work with local service organizations to provide families with assistance in purchasing the designated clothing.
