  • Dress codes in high school

    I was driving by Fort Zumwalt South High School on my way to work this morning and saw a group of kids walking to school. In this group was a girl who was wearing a skirt that barely came down below her butt. If she drops a pen or book, there is no way she can bend down to pick it up.

    It's been 17 years since I was in school but I remember 2 kids getting kicked out of school for sporting mohawks because it was a distraction to other students.

    My question is this......what kind of dress codes are there (if any) in public high schools because I know the skirt I saw this morning would never have passed when I was in high school?

    I would say most schools don't enforce dress codes unless a student is wearing something out right offensive such as a profanity or sexually suggestive picture or wording.

    They say they enforce skirt lengths, etc. They don't really.

        I have seen not only high school girls, but middle school girls, walking to school in the mornings in skimpy short skirts and spaghetti strap tops. No way some of these outfits meet any sort of dress codes.

              my daughter goes to belleville west high school which implemented a dress code this school year for the first time. basically the kids can wear navy or khaki pants and the shirts must be either white, columbia blue or maroon with a collar. skirts can be worn if over the knee. no insigna's on the shirt unless smaller than a quarter. no hats, no outrageous bling jewelry. imo the kids look 100% better and it appears most if not all are pretty much in compliance.

                You are correct. Most male teachers are afraid to tell girls their skirts are too short or their shirts hang too low or that they're showing too much of their stomach, etc., etc. And it's b/c it only takes one girl to say that a teacher was "checking them out".

                  Yep and then that male teacher ends up with charges that he harassed the female student and he ends up losing his job and reputation.

                  On the other hand, if the girl didn't wear such a short skirt to school in the first place, the whole situation would be avoided.

                    i think that is a cop out by the teacher. i am sure a message can be gotten to an administrator or a female staff member to convey the infraction.

                      The sooner the high schools switch to some uniform system, the better. The outfits that the kids are wearing are completely ridiculous. I wouldn't want it to be a police state, but there needs to be some middle ground to keep things from getting out of hand.

                      Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

                          A friend of mine teaches English there, he said there were a group of parents fighting that tooth and nail. I don't think it's a bad thing at all, it's not like they are making them dress in their "Sunday best".

                              I was going to get sent home in 10th grade for having a shirt that said "Van Halen Kicks Ass". I was told to turn it inside out. I said no and had a football jersey handy and put that on.

                              I wore Budweiser shorts often and I know I could not do that or wear any shirts with beer or tobacco logos on them.
