What You'll Learn

Training Overview

Does your dress code violate Title IX? Learn how to fix it before the new school year begins.

Last year, a federal appeals court ruled that Title IX prohibits discriminatory dress codes in a case involving a North Carolina public charter school that required girls to wear skirts. Before the 2022-23 school year begins, you need to revise your dress code to ensure that it does not violate the federal law banning sex discrimination. Completing the revision, review, and approval process in time likely requires you to take action this spring.

While ensuring attire maintains an orderly environment, you must consider the relevant laws when writing, implementing, and enforcing the policy. Understanding and proactively addressing the legal issues will enable you to avoid lawsuits.
