Our Goal: A safe and effective learning environment where every student feels comfortable and valued.
- Talking to your student about the purpose of a dress code
- Discussing the consequences of violating the dress code
- If requested, providing your child with a change of clothes
- Learn the dress code policy
- Comply with reasonable staff requests
- Be respectful
With dress code enforcement in Manteca Unified, students, parents, and staff can expect:
- Minimal loss of class time
- Consistent enforcement
- Expectations clearly and frequently communicated with students
- Immediate action for extreme violations, health, or safety hazards
- Parent/guardian notification of violation and outcome
Students can expect dress code enforcement to be...
- Discreet: When practical, violations will not be addressed during class time or in front of other students.
- Specific: Students will be informed of exactly what is not in compliance.
- Without Physical Contact: Students’ personal space will be respected.
As a District, collectively, our interventions for dress code violations must be preventative and educational. In addition, any discipline that shall arise from dress code violations shall have minimal loss of instructional time. Interventions will vary with violation severity and number of repeated offenses and can include:
- Student/teacher conference
- Parent conference
- Student asked to wear alternative or borrowed clothing
- Warning Letters
- Detention and more
