Student Uniform Dress - June 2002 Revision

Note: This procedural directive was reviewed, revised, and combined with several others in October 2010. We provide this revision for historic purposes only. Please refer to the current procedural directive.

Individual schools may adopt a student uniform dress policy but must document the use of a procedure that ensures student, parent and school community input and involvement in the planning and adoption process. The process must include a distribution of the proposed policy to all parents and students, specific plans to accommodate those families who can not afford to purchase the required clothing and a well advertised public meeting at the school to allow discussion and comment on the proposed policy.

The school must document a vote on the proposed policy with each student family having one vote. The school must mail ballots with pre-paid return addressed envelopes to each family eligible to vote. The polling results must show that at least 65% of the returned ballots are in support of the proposal before the school can adopt a student uniform dress policy.

A school may request permission to use a polling process differing from that outlined above. The school must submit the proposed dress policy and the family involvement and polling plan to the appropriate assistant superintendent for approval prior to holding any community vote.
