Dress Code

On January 12, 2022, following an extensive review involving parents, students and staff of the district, the Governing Board approved modifications to the dress code.  The dress code is fully explained in Administrative Regulation 5132 and you can learn more about the 2021-2022 dress code review at https://www.cusd.com/DressCodeReview.aspx.

The dress code exists as part of our overall mission to prepare and equip students to be successful in life after high school.  We value and respect our students’ contributions to Clovis Unified and we value the role of parents/guardians as partners in our educational mission to serve our community, and we believe that our district’s diversity is a strength.   Our dress code plays an important role in creating an excellent learning environment for all students and is consistently supported by our parent community in annual parent surveys.
 
We believe that attention to appearance and a student’s attitude toward self and school are related. Good grooming, and appropriateness of attire are a part of learning for all students. However, we recognize that students’ mode of dress and grooming is a manifestation of their personal style and individual preference. We believe that students and parents can freely choose apparel that demonstrates individuality, as well as maintain the standards of appropriateness.

According to Governing Board Policy 5132 the dress code serves an important role to provide a safe school environment, establish mutual respect, and create a learning environment free from distraction for students.  The Clovis Unified School District  enforces a dress code for all students, grades K-12. Sound judgment and reasonableness must prevail in interpreting the dress code. Its purpose is to foster students’ pride in themselves and to instill the attitudes, values, and standards reflected by the society in which the students will take their place.

Use of best practices for dress code enforcement are a part of ensuring that the dress code remains a positive part of our school climate.
