Note that the deadline for the forum is Tuesday, April 30, 2019. All feedback will be collated and provided to the Education Policy Advisory Committee regarding a proposed new policy on a student dress code as per the approved Board motion that was passed on March 12, 2019
 
“THAT the Board of Education recommends the adoption of the following policy and will seek feedback from partner groups via the Education Policy Advisory Committee.”
 
534 Policy: Student Dress Code 
 
The Board is committed to providing students with learning environments that are safe and inclusive. Students must show respect for everyone, and this does not change based on how someone is dressed. The Board believes that judgments on the appropriateness of student attire are best made by students and their families, because clothing choices reflect individual identity, cultural norms, and socio-economic factors and are intensely personal. Students may attend school and school-related functions in clothing of their choice, provided that it meets the following conditions: 
 
1. Conforms with the health and safety requirements for the intended activity. 
2. Does not promote drugs or alcohol. 
3. Does not display profanity. 
4. Does not display discriminatory language or images. 
 
This policy does not apply to schools that have adopted school uniforms.

Student Dress Code

As a school, we are a place of business and students are expected to demonstrate good judgment in terms of appropriate dress. While on school property, students may not wear clothing that makes graphic or verbal reference to sex, drugs, alcohol or that is violent or discriminatory in nature. Students are to not wear clothing that is overly revealing.  Some examples of clothing that may not be acceptable are, bare midriffs, spaghetti straps and low necklines. In addition, shirts should be worn, and underwear should be covered.

Code of Conduct

The School Community at Chilliwack Secondary is encouraged to act in a responsible and socially acceptable manner.  Our goal is to provide opportunities for the optimum learning experience for all our students and staff in a safe and comfortable learning environment.
