The School Board and administration understand that clothing and dress are important forms of expression for students. All students are expected to dress appropriately for a K–12 environment. In November 2018, the Charlottesville School Board unanimously passed a resolution that bans students from wearing clothing that depicts symbols “associated with racial hatred and violence,” including swastikas or Confederate imagery.
Students not complying with the dress code will be offered solutions such as covering or removing the item in question or wearing an item supplied by the school. Repeated infractions will result in disciplinary action.
