YES Prep's 2023-2024 Dress Code Policy

YES Prep Public Schools believe in the power of community and school pride while also deeply valuing students’ right to express their individuality without the fear of unnecessary discipline, body shaming or the confines of gender norms. Students have the right to be treated equitably and dress code enforcement at YES Prep will not create disparities, reinforce or increase the marginalization of any group, nor will it be unfairly enforced more strictly against a student because of racial identity, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, cultural or religious identity, household income, body size or type or body maturity.  

YES Prep’s dress code policy is centered around values of equity and school pride. The YES Prep dress code allows for building individuality and allows for community building through campus-specific attire. The dress code is a daily expectation and should meet district and campus guidelines. Like all YES Prep policies, if a student’s dress or accessory choice poses a concern for student physical or emotional safety, a campus administrator has the discretion to disallow the dress item. 

School-specific Dress Code & Uniform Policy
