Proposed DoDEA Dress Code

The Office of Education Policy and Operations (HQ) in collaboration with the Civil Rights Program developed a proposed DoDEA-wide student dress code.  The proposed dress code was developed by the Civil Rights Steering Committee and if approved, will be redlined into the updated Student Rights and Responsibilities Policy (DoDEA AI 1353.01).  In an effort to ensure we have wide-spread stakeholder engagement, a 30 day commenting period is being offered to allow stakeholders an opportunity to review/comment on the proposed dress code.  All comments are to be sent to .  Thank you for your assistance in this matter and we look forward to receiving your input.
