On April 6, 2016, the Governing Board approved modifications to the dress code that removed language that differentiated standards between boys and girls. The dress code is fully explained in ar2105.
We believe that attention to appearance and a student’s attitude toward self and school are related. Good taste, 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.
At their June 26, 2002, meeting the Clovis Unified School District Governing Board approved the wearing of backless shoes for students in grades 7-12 The following excerpt is from Administrative Regulation 2105*:
Shoes, or sandals without heel straps that do not present a safety concern may be worn by students in grades 7 through 12, except during physical education classes, recess, while participating in school-related athletic competitions, events or activities, or while participating in other activities where safety is a concern. Backless shoes commonly known as “flip-flops,” “beach shoes,” “soccer sandals,” “zories” and/or thongs are inappropriate and will not be allowed. For safety reasons, students in grades pre-school through 6 are not allowed to wear flip-flops, shoes or sandals without a heel strap.
