Agenda Item #43
Request a More Restrictive Dress Code at Southwest Middle School
Board Policy 5511- Dress and Grooming currently allows students to wear tops with a strap that is a minimum of one and one half 1/2 inches in width. The school convened a dress code committee and is recommending upper garments have sleeves for both male and female students. A consistent dress and grooming policy is necessary in order to maintain order, provide a safe school environment, and promote discipline. It is difficult to be consistent with dress code violations when the requirements are vague.
Approve a more restrictive dress code at Southwest Middle School.
