DRESS AND APPEARANCE
The East Whittier City School District Board of Education believes that students should be provided with a quality education in a safe wholesome environment free from the threats of harmful influence of any groups or gangs which advocate drug use or disruptive behavior. Furthermore, the Board believes that the presence of certain types of clothing and attire can cause a substantial disruption of, or interference with, instruction and school activities. Therefore, the School Board prohibits the wearing or display of clothing, jewelry or materials that evidence membership in or affiliation with any group or gang (i.e. hair nets, bandannas, initial belt buckles, baggy pants, spikes, studs and chains), which are obscene, sexually explicit or suggestive; or which promote the use/abuse of drugs and/or alcohol.
SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS WILL MAKE THE FINAL JUDGMENT AS TO THE APPROPRIATENESS OF ATTIRE.
