Student Dress Expectations In an effort to
eliminate confusion about the interpretation and
enforcement of student dress expectations, this
presentation seeks to create a clearer
school-based standard for students, parents and
teachers. The illustrations may not address all
clothing possibilities or questions, and some may
even find the standards reflected in this
presentation to be quaint. However, Isaac Fox
adheres to District 95s established mission
where learning is at the center of all that we
do. Creating an age-appropriate environment is
consistent with the goal of cultivating caring
and responsible citizens whose words, actions,
and appearance reflect a modesty of style and
seriousness of purpose. The world too often
tempts our young people to act all grown up we
believe in maintaining an environment where they
can still be young.
2
The starting point for establishing student dress
expectations is language from District 95s Code
of Conduct.
  • Inappropriate revealing clothing should not be
    worn to school.
  • Headgear such as caps/hats, bandanas, or
    sunglasses are inappropriate.
  • Offensive or obscene clothing will not be worn
    to school.
  • Personal appearance that interferes with the
    instructional process, or promotes discrimination
    and/or harassment is not permitted.

3
But what does inappropriate revealing or
obscene mean exactly?
  • Popular culture and the fashion industry may
    determine what is in style, but they should not
    and do not get to determine what is appropriate
    for a school setting.
  • Administrators and teachers, guided by Board
    policy, determine reasonable standards for a
    school.
  • On judgments of appropriateness, Isaac Fox School
    will error on the side of modesty.

4
  • Areas of concern for a learning environment
  • Clothing that does not cover undergarments
  • Clothing that is excessively tight
  • Shorts that are too short
  • Tops that reveal too much skin
  • Clothing with language or images that are
    inappropriate
  • It is certainly the case that dress expectations
    are more of an issue for girls than boys. This
    reality speaks more to the influence of the
    fashion industry than to the availability of
    suitable clothing. Consider that dress code
    violations are much less of an issue in the
    school during the winter months when girls choose
    to wear clothing more suitable for cooler
    weather.

So, what exactly are our standards? The
following series of slides attempts to clarify
the standards for dress at Isaac Fox School.
5
Are these shorts appropriate for school?
  • Certainly

6
Is this an appropriate T-shirt for school?
  • It is not. This shirt contains a reference to
    alcohol, which is inappropriate.

7
Are these shorts appropriate for school?
  • They are not. These shorts are too provocative
    for a school environment that is supposed to be
    focused on learning. Again, just because they are
    in fashion does not make them suitable for an
    elementary school setting.

8
Is this t-shirt appropriate for school?
  • No. The t-shirt is too suggestive and invites
    disruptive or inappropriate school behavior.

9
Is this style appropriate for school?
  • No. Articles of clothing that either cannot
    cover undergarments or are being worn in such a
    manner that reveal undergarments are not
    appropriate for a school setting.

10
Is this appropriate for school?
  • No. This top is too deeply cut and revealing.
    While it may be stylish and appropriate for some
    occasions, it is not suitable for an elementary
    school environment.

11
Is this appropriate for school?
  • Sure. While the dress code prohibits
    excessively tight clothing, this top does not
    attract too much attention and does not,
    therefore, negatively impact a learning
    environment.

12
Is this appropriate for school?
  • No. The combination of the skinny straps and
    the deep neckline result in a top that is
    unnecessarily revealing for an elementary school
    setting.

13
Is this look appropriate for a school?
  • We hope you agree that it is not. Clothing that
    reveals undergarments do not contribute to a
    studious and modest environment.

14
Is this t-shirt picture appropriate for school?
  • While the picture may be funny, depictions or
    references to weapons or violence are not
    appropriate for a school environment.

15
Are these shorts appropriate for school?
No, they are too short.
16
What is the point of all this?
  • School should be a fun and pleasant environment,
    but it is, first and foremost, a place of
    learning. Behavior and dress should promote this
    goal, not distract us from it.
