Chapter E - School Operations

Part 11.0 Student Dress Code

Section 11.5 Exemptions

Policy Statement:


Under the Utah Code, the school administrator is allowed to grant an exemption from complying with the dress code requirements to a student for extenuating circumstances or religious reasons. The administrator will carefully consider all requests for exemptions, and grant those which meet the standard of necessity. For instance, unusual medical circumstances might constitute an exemption, as may a religious requirement such as the wearing of a headpiece. The administrator is directed to develop individual dress guidelines which, insofar as is possible, approximate the approved dress code for each student who receives an exemption from the dress code due to extraordinary circumstances.
