Our female students at JCHS are targeted by the current school dress code more than our male students. There are teachers, students and parents who have experienced this first hand. My own daughter was sent home because her athletic capri pants with a hoodie covering her behind was a distraction according to the dress code. Days later a male student walked the halls throughout the whole day with a female image on the back of his shirt that was taking her shirt off, exposing the under side of her breast. I do not understand how this was not a distraction.

Male students can be found walking the halls with shorts that obviously are breaking dress code and told "those are out of dress code, just don't wear them again.." because it was a certain student. This dress code should apply to everyone right? Does this not apply to students that are deemed extraordinary by staff, coaches or administration?

This is not only happening now, this has been going on at the high school since I was student. Boys allowed to wear sweat pants or athletic wear that was revealing. One of the administrators has actually made the statement "that might be all they can afford" why is this not applied to female students. Young male students would wear suggestive shirts that would obviously talk about male genitalia, it was funny right? Just a joke and we as females were too easily offended. Meanwhile, I was dress coded for a skirt that "just didn't look long enough and that may send the wrong signal" That was over 20 years ago and this mindset is still very present. There are talks of Rape culture, some social media has even stated that there was a national Rape day....hmmmm I wonder where a culture like that would even start?
