Fix The Dress Code

This petition had 90 supporters


If you see a blatant injustice in the enforcement and/or rules of the dress code, sign this. Girls (and occasionally boys) are often removed from class to change their clothes because it does not comply with a dress code that most people break everyday.

This dress code includes- ripped clothing (a major problem), leggings (another problem), tank tops, short shorts and skirts, bra-straps being visible (which can be difficult for many female students because bra-straps aren't always easy to hide), pajamas, and in some cases (though not state in the handbook) sweats and skinny jeans that are too tight. It's very easy to break dress code, and very difficult to comply to it.

A major problem is that this dress code is so unevenly enforced (because it is ridiculously extensive). Girls have been told in the past that they cannot wear specific clothes because their "body type" makes it provocative. I've been able to wear jeans with holes in them, without leggings, since the beginning of the 2017 school year, while the girls around me have been dress coded for wearing essentially the same jeans. I've even gotten away with wearing short gym shorts in the halls (for a class) and have not been dress coded- EVEN when a member of administration had walked by me, clearly seeing me. This dress code is that unevenly enforced.

WE DEMAND TO HAVE A SAY ON WHAT IS ON THE DRESS CODE, AND HOW IT IS ENFORCED IN GARDEN VALLEY SCHOOL.

I want to show the administration how deeply irritating this is for students, teachers, and parents.
