Some students have arguments about the dress code.  They think that they don’t have to follow it, but in District 11, the code is the same in every school. If a student walks into a court room with a crop top and booty shorts, it would not be appropriate or get positive attention from the judge or jury.

But students seem to think inappropriate clothing is okay in the classroom. They argue and fight staff members about a pair of skinny jeans or pulling sagging pants up.  Is changing personal appearance going to hurt?

I understand where the students are coming from, as I am a student.  They want to have a choice and be individual.  A dress code can still be individual and be appropriate dress. That doesn’t mean teachers should overreact to students, because their shoulders are showing. There is an easier way to work out dress code issues.  Students and teachers need to communicate about why the clothing students are wearing bothers the teacher or violates the dress code.  Students need to calmly advocate their concern for individual expression.

Please think before you dress and communicate calmly.
