A student’s style of dress and/or grooming may reflect individual preference; however, such preferences must be selected within the constraints of reasonable rules and appropriate standards that are consistent with the maintenance of an effective learning atmosphere and good personal hygiene. The Tulsa Public Schools School Board expects each student’s attire and grooming to promote a positive, safe and healthy environment within the school.
The Board has determined that reasonable regulation of school attire and personal adornment (2601-R, Student Dress Code) is within its authority and consistent with its responsibility to provide an appropriate environment for learning. Although the Board recognizes that individual students have a right to free expression, that right must be balanced with the Board’s responsibility to provide a safe, secure and orderly educational environment for all students.
