Proper undergarments should be worn but not visible.

August 11, 2006

While going through one of V-I-C’s posts I stumbled upon another story. “Cleavage Ban in Arlington School“. Thought I’d post the Dress Code, so you guys can compare and let me know what you guys think. I for one, wasn’t lucky enough to be placed in “Mixed School”.

Now isn’t this a crime against Humanity? (Seems to be the in thing, in SL – I meant crimes against humanity) Human Rights violation? Not letting them nice girls wear what they want. Googling more on this issue I found this : Panty Ranting. I’m sure, attendance rates are gonna drop in School.



A student’s conduct is related to his/her clothing. Therefore, the school is directly concerned with the student’s clothing. The appropriateness of a student’s clothing for the school environment should dictate the choice of clothing and grooming practices on each given day.

Some campuses have implemented a uniform requirement pursuant to AISD policy FNCA (Local). See p. 56-60. Parents and students should check with the campus to confirm whether uniforms are required.

All students are expected to adhere to common practices of modesty, cleanliness and neatness; to dress in a respectful manner within the acceptable standards of the community and in such a manner as to contribute to the academic atmosphere, not detract from it. Students who fail to comply with this dress code may be sent home and be subject to disciplinary actions.

Any clothing, accessories, symbols, jewelry, or other paraphernalia, which depicts or suggests association with a gang, secret society, or fraternity, shall not be brought to school, worn at school, or in any way be present at any school-sponsored event.


Clarification regarding apparel should be obtained PRIOR TO WEARING IT TO SCHOOL; this can be obtained from the school administration. Students in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action as determined by the school’s administration.

Teachers are charged with the responsibility of enforcing student dress code in their classes as well as on campus. Administrators and other school personnel share the same responsibility. Teachers shall follow building procedure for discipline referral regarding dress code violations.
No attempt will be made to dictate fashion styles as long as they are in keeping with district policies. It should be noted, however, that it is the responsibility of the student and parent that the student adhere to the dress code, as follows:


1. a. Any clothing, jewelry or accessories with decorations, patches, lettering, advertisements, etc., that may be considered obscene or offensive are not to be worn to school. This includes any clothing, jewelry, accessories that may be used as weapons, accessories having drug, sexual emblems, tobacco or alcoholic beverage references or designs.

b. Form-Fitting garments such as spandex may only be worn with another layer of clothing, which meets the dress code.


2. a. Crop tops, tube tops, halters and spaghetti straps are unacceptable (anything less than 2 inches is considered a spaghetti strap.) Strapless dresses without jackets are unacceptable.

b. The display of cleavage is unacceptable. Low cut blouses, tops, sweaters etc. with plunging necklines are not allowed.

c. The length of an untucked shirt must be no longer than the tip of the longest finger with the student’s hand fully extended down the side of the student’s leg.

d. Transparent and/or see through material is considered unacceptable. Shirts/tops must touch the waist of pants/skirts at all times (i.e. when in movement, when arms are extended or raised, and when in seated position, etc.)

e. At the secondary level, a boy’s shirt should cover the entire crown of the shoulder.

f. Tall T-Shirts are not permitted.


3. a. The length of a skirt/dress must be a minimum of half the distance between the fingertips and the top of the knee when the student’s hand is fully extended down the side of the student’s leg.

b. When measuring skirts, dresses, or shorts/skorts that have slits, the length will be determined by measuring from the top of the slit.


4. a. The minimum length of shorts/skorts must be no shorter than the tip of the longest finger with student’s hand fully extended down the side of the student’s leg.


5. a. Intentionally torn or cut/slashed pants are considered inappropriate.
Manufactured boot-cut slits are acceptable.

6. a. No Sagging.
b. Students shall wear their trousers or overalls properly at the waist.


7. a. All students must wear shoes.
b. Students should wear athletic footwear in order to participate in any physical education class.
c. Hair should be kept neat, clean, and reasonably styled.

    Maybe we could send them some of our govt. school prefects to enforce these rules. “Ei, malli! What the hell is that you are wearing???”

    I rem the tortue we gave some of those malli’s. For those who had crue cuts, we’d get them to put shoe polish, to cover the skin. Long hair, put rubber bands. This was additional to standing in the sun, for a good hour.

    I think I’ve heard, in certain schools, girls being made to wear paper skirts, if their uniform was found to be too short.

    Found a crazy pic on Crazy Lanka. Added that to the bottom of the post.

    I say, i remember a story where if a skirt was too short in the local schools, they used to hem it up with newspaper and the girl had to wear that the whole day untill she could go home and have the skirt made longer..
