ADSB Student Dress Guidelines

The Algoma District School Board has developed draft ADSB Student Dress Guidelines.  These draft Guidelines were developed after a critical equity review of operational requirements and current practices, as well as a scan of related policies and guidelines in other school boards.  When finalized, these Guidelines will be used as school student dress codes starting in September 2023.  

Additional information can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document or by following this the link which provides access to a recorded presentation providing an overview of the Guidelines including background information and next steps.

We are looking for feedback from students, parents/guardians and staff on the draft Guidelines.  Feedback will be collected through ThoughtExchange until Thursday, May 25 (4:00 pm).  Links to the ThoughtExchange questions have been shared by email and Edsby.  If you require these links, please reach out to your school Principal.
Feedback from the consultations is important and valuable as the ADSB supports safe and positive inclusive learning spaces.  However, the expectations outlined within the draft ADSB Student Dress Guidelines are based on the ADSB’s obligations under the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Education Act and Board policies.  When feedback from the consultations is considered, the Guidelines will not be altered in any way that results in discrimination or increased marginalization of students.
