OCDSB Student Dress Code

All students have the right to express themselves in school through their choice of clothing, hair styles, jewelry, and accessories.


While a student’s style is their choice, we want to keep school a place where everyone can feel comfortable.


In April 2022, the OCDSB Board of Trustees approved updates to the Safe Schools Policies, which includes the updated School District Code of Conduct (that contains a section on dress code). The process to update these policies began in 2019 and included consultations with students, families, staff and community members on a variety of issues, including dress code.


The new student dress code applies to all schools. All students have the right to express themselves through their dress without fear of body shaming, bias, or discrimination.


See our dress code poster for a brief look at what our dress code includes and what it doesn’t.
