CCSD Middle Schools promote a positive dress code where students are encouraged to wear clothing that is comfortable and appropriate for an educational environment. A common dress code cultivates a safe and disciplined learning environment, which is essential to a quality educational program.
CCSD Policy JICAB on student attire is intended to help students concentrate on schoolwork, reduce discipline problems, and promote school order and safety. It is designed to ensure that all students are treated equitably regardless of race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, household income or body type/size. Clothing, accessories, paraphernalia, or body adornments may not:
- Be profane, obscene, lewd, suggestive, libelous, or vulgar
- Denote gang involvement
- Promote the use of drugs, tobacco, alcohol, or weapons
- Intimidate or threaten any individual or group
- Expose certain body parts (i.e. genitals, buttocks, midriffs, and breasts)
- Disrupt the learning environment
- Promote any activity prohibited by the student code of conduct
Additional Clothing Guidelines include:
- Clothing shall be sufficient to conceal all undergarments at all times (undergarments are any garments that are under the exterior layer of clothing).
- Shoes must be worn at all times; house slippers are not to be worn at school.
- Head coverings are not to be worn except for religious or documented medical purposes.
- Pajamas are not be worn at school.
- Accessories that could be considered dangerous or could be used as a weapon may not be worn at school.
- Any item that obscures the face or ears (except as a religious observation) may not be worn at school.
If clothing or accessories are inappropriate, disruptive, or outside the expectations, students will be asked to change; parents will be contacted and/or other disciplinary consequences may take place.
