The Moreland School District Governing Board believes that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment (BP 5132). The Board expects students to wear clothing that is suitable for the school activities in which they participate. Students shall not wear clothing that presents a health or safety hazard or is likely to cause a substantial disruption to the educational program. (cf. 4119.22/4219.22/4319.22 - Dress and Grooming)
Students shall not be prohibited from dressing in a manner consistent with their gender identity or gender expression or with their religious or cultural observance. (cf. 5145.3 - Nondiscrimination/Harassment) (cf. 5145.7 - Sexual Harassment)
The dress code shall not be enforced in a manner that discriminates against a particular viewpoint or results in a disproportionate application of the dress code based on students' gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, household income, or body type or size. (cf. 0410 - Nondiscrimination in District Programs and Activities) (cf. 0415 - Equity) (cf. 5145.2 - Freedom of Speech/Expression)
Your clothing and general appearance must be clean, safe, and appropriate for school. If it is determined that your clothing is inappropriate for school, parents may be contacted, and students will be required to change into clothing that meets our dress code policy. (EC 35183) Administrative discretion applies for all dress code rules.
Minimum Attire Standards
Student attire must permit the student to participate in learning without posing a risk to the health or safety of any student or school district personnel.
