Chatsworth Charter High School Dress Code
District Wide Appropriate Dress Plan | Jackson County School Board

Purpose of Dress Code–guidelines for attire
The purpose of the CCHS dress code is to ensure that student attire does not interfere with the health or safety of any student, that student attire does not contribute to a hostile or intimidating atmosphere for any student, and that dress code enforcement does not reinforce or increase stereotypes, marginalization or oppression of any group based on race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, household income, or body type/size. All students are expected to dress in an appropriate manner consistent with the academic environment. All students shall be required to show proper attention to personal cleanliness. The following rules and guidelines are designed to help students thoroughly understand the expectations put upon them as they prepare for college, careers, and professional life after high school as well as to nurture school pride and a focus on academics (see attached CCHS Dress Code).

The following Costume guidelines shall apply:

  • Students and staff may wear costumes to school according to guidelines established by the school, district, county and state. They must be safe and not hinder or distract the learning of the students and others.
  • Costumes shall not be demeaning to any person or group based on age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or to any individual staff or student.
  • Costumes must comply with the dress code restriction and not contain images that are “vulgar, sexually suggestive, discriminatory, obscene, libelous, contain threats, or that promote illegal or violent content such as the unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia” or cause a significant disruption or distraction to the school program.
  • No weapons or replica weapons are to be brought to school. (including fiction and non—fiction)
  • Mask may not be worn
  • No costume can be worn that is unsafe or that may create a safety hazard. Costumes may not impair a student’s vision or movement (ex. travel safely, ability to climb stairs).
  • Students and staff who wish to be excused from participating in a holiday program due to religious beliefs must be accommodated without penalty or bias (see BUL-5479.2).
