Student Dress Code
Marana High School expects that all students will dress in a way that is appropriate for the school day or for any school sponsored event. Student dress choices should respect the District’s intent to sustain a community that is student focused and inclusive of a diverse range of identities. The primary responsibility for a student’s attire resides with the student and their parent(s) or guardian(s). The school district is responsible for seeing that student attire does not interfere with the health or safety of any student, and that student attire does not contribute to a hostile or intimidating atmosphere for any student.
Students Must Wear:
- A shirt (with fabric in the front, back, and on the sides under the arms), AND
- Pants/jeans or the equivalent (for example, a skirt, sweatpants, leggings, a dress or shorts), AND
- *Courses that include attire as part of the curriculum (for example, professionalism, public speaking, and job readiness) may include assignment-specific dress. Activity-specific shoes requirements are permitted (for example, athletic shoes for PE).
Students May Wear:
- Hats that allow the face to be visible to staff, and not interfere with the line of sight of any student or staff.
- Religious headwear.
- Hoodie sweatshirts (wearing the hood overhead is allowed, but the face and ears must be visible to school staff).
- Fitted pants, including opaque leggings, yoga pants and “skinny jeans”
- Ripped jeans or shorts, as long as underwear and buttocks are not exposed.
- Tank tops, including spaghetti straps or halter-tops.
- Off the shoulder shirts with sleeves.
- Athletic attire.
Students Cannot Wear:
- Violent language or images.
- Images or language depicting drugs or alcohol (or any illegal item or activity).
- Hate speech, profanity, pornography.
- Any clothing that reveals visible undergarments (visible waistbands and visible straps are allowed)
- Swimsuits (except as required in class or athletic practice).
- Accessories that could be considered dangerous or could be used as a weapon.
- Any item that obscures the face or ears (except as a religious observance).
Dress Code Violation will require students to change items(s) or remain in ISS until a parent can pick up the student. A student in violation of dress code will be offered an item to borrow and change into, they may pick-up their item the next day, upon return of the borrowed item. Consequences for Dress Code Violation: first offense will result in a warning; each subsequent offense may result in increased consequence, from after school beautification to out of school suspension.
Repeated violations of the dress code policy may be deemed insubordinate conduct and dealt with as specified in the Marana Unified School District’s Comprehensive Student Discipline Policy.
