Dedham Public Schools Dress Code

  • The dress code for Dedham Students (PK-22) is governed by School Committee policy JICA which states: 

    The responsibility for the dress and appearance of the students will rest with individual students and parents.

    They have the right to determine how the student will dress providing that the attire is not destructive to school property, complies with requirements for health and safety, and does not cause disorder or disruption. The administration is authorized to take action in instances where individual dress does not meet the stated requirements.

    This does not mean that students, faculty, or parent groups may not recommend appropriate dress for school or special occasions. It means that students will not be prevented from attending school or a school function, or otherwise be discriminated against, so long as their dress and appearance meet the requirements set forth above.
