Why do we Wear Uniforms?
A school uniform teaches students to dress smartly and take pride in their appearance… Perhaps most importantly, a uniform means students don’t have to worry about peer pressure when it comes to their clothes. When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn’t so important.
Alta Public Schools has a dress code that is reasonably related to the health and safety of students. School dress codes and uniform policy will be implemented in a manner consistent with the rights set forth in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and Section 2 of Article 1 of the California Constitution. The California legislature has determined that “gang apparel” is hazardous to the health and safety of the school environment, and therefore, the wearing of such apparel will be restricted. Clothing with logos has also been determined to distract from learning.
Student Dress Code
All students shall be required to show proper attention to personal cleanliness, health, neatness, safety and suitability of clothing and appearance for school activities. In every case, the dress and grooming of the student shall be clean and shall not:
California Education Code section 35183 allows a governing board to adopt a dress code that authorizes schools to require pupils to wear a school uniform. Prepa Tec Los Angeles has adopted a uniform policy in conjunction with the School Site Council and Parent-‐Teacher Organization. It has been determined that the school uniform shall be as follows:
