SF Schools Allowed to Set Individual Dress Codes

SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Unified School District’s board of education on Tuesday voted unanimously to allow individual schools to set their own policies on certain dress codes and appearance standards, such as the wearing of hats.

The updated policy allows schools to set policies in the wearing of hats, caps and other head coverings in school and removes any district wide
restriction on the items as long as they do not promote obscenity or illegal activity.

The new policy also removes any explicit mention of school suspension for a violation of the dress code and encourages schools to develop dress codes with input from students, staff and the community, according to the school board.

The new policy will go into effect at the beginning of the 2014-15 school year.
