Students may dress and groom themselves in any manner that is not disruptive to the educational environment or dangerous to themselves or others. The exception to this right is in "Uniformly Dressed" schools. These schools have Board of Education approval to determine the type of dress, including the color, that students may wear at school. Students and parents will be notified of this dress policy upon enrollment into the school. Each school may provide a more specific list of prohibited items.
