Tucson Unified School District’s philosophy is to provide an educational environment designed to motivate, teach, and encourage students to attain the highest levels of proficiency in all areas. Dress guidelines are intended to promote the awareness of social, cultural, and aesthetic forces that affect the school environment. Students are expected to dress appropriately and in a way that reflects personal and school pride. 

Clothing should be neat, clean, modest and in good taste. Shoes must be worn at all times. Examples of clothing that are inappropriate in a teaching and learning environment:
  • Swimsuits
  • Halter tops and halter dresses
  • Backless tops and backless dresses
  • Strapless tops and strapless dresses
  • Spaghetti strap tops and spaghetti strap dresses
  • Exposed undergarments
  • See-through clothing
  • Shirts that bare the midriff
  • Short-shorts, short skirts and dresses that do not cover the buttocks. Shorts, skirts, and dresses must reach the tip of the middle finger when arms are extended at sides while standing. The waistbands of these garments must stay above the hips—NO SAGGING of trousers is allowed
  • Garments with plunging necklines
  • Muscle shirts
  • Clothing or articles which identify with illegal or undesirable organizations
  • Clothing with racial statements, obscene/abusive language, or sexual depiction/innuendo, (Example: Playboy, Players 69, etc.)
