5132 AR - Dress and Grooming

Administrative Regulation No.  5132 
Regulation Reviewed:  Oct. 14, 2020


The Governing Board believes that the responsibility for a student’s attire primarily rests with the student and the student’s parents/guardians. The school district and individual schools are responsible for ensuring that student attire does not interfere with the health or safety of any student, and that student attire does not contribute to a hostile or intimidating atmosphere for any student.

Students and parents/guardians shall be informed about dress standards at the beginning of the school year and whenever these standards are revised. A student who violates these standards shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.

School-directed changes to a student’s attire should be the least restrictive and disruptive to the student’s school day. Administration and enforcement of the dress code shall be gender neutral and consistent.

This policy applies to all individual schools. Schools may not enact more restrictive or less restrictive dress codes.

Coaches and teachers may impose more stringent dress requirements to accommodate the special needs of certain sports and/or classes.

No grade of a student participating in a physical education class shall be adversely affected if the student does not wear standardized physical education apparel because of circumstances beyond the student’s control.  (Education Code 49066)

The principal, staff, students and parent/guardians at each school may establish reasonable dress and grooming regulations for times when students are engaged in extracurricular or other special school activities.
