When school starts again in the fall, San Jose Unified’s dress code will no longer ban short shorts, spaghetti straps and halter tops, after a student and her parents challenged the dress code and won.
The Mercury News reports that with the exception of strict uniform policies that will continue at its elementary and middle schools, the district's new policy simply requires clothing to be “suitable” and to cover the chest, torso and undergarments.
The policy, approved last month, still bans see-through clothing, and it notes that if students are forced to change attire, it should happen in the “least restrictive and disruptive” manner.
