Summer in Boise means it's almost back to school time, and that means the fun family ritual of back to school shopping! So much fun buying new clothes, expressing yourself, and getting that perfect outfit together.

Unless, of course, your school has a new dress code and you have to change up your entire closet.

Boise Schools have approved a new dress code for the 2023/2024 school year, taking effect this August when students are back in class.

Obviously, tops and bottoms are required, but what exactly aren't students allowed to wear in Boise Schools in 2023? Here's the list:

  • Swimsuits Visible underwear. However, visible waistbands or straps on undergarments worn under other clothing are not a violation of the policy.
  • Violent language or images Images or overt language depicting drugs, alcohol or any illegal item or activity
  • Hate speech, profanity, pornography

Seems pretty standard, right?

Boise Schools say their staff will undertake training to have clear guidelines on what is and isn't allowed under the new dress code. Per their dress code:

The school district is responsible for seeing that student attire does not interfere with the health or safety of any student, that student attire does not contribute to a hostile or intimidating atmosphere for any student, and that dress code enforcement does not reinforce or increase marginalization or oppression of any group based on race, sex, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, household income, or body type/size.


How are you feeling about Boise School's new dress code rules? Do you think the student(s) in your home will have a problem with the new rules? Let's connect.


If you think the dress code is bad, wait until you discover the new TikTok trend happening in schools:

Idaho Mascots: That School Is a What!?

Mascots are a special addition to any school or sports team and they often encompass what makes that group special. It is a sense of pride that keeps the spirit of a mascot alive. Here in Idaho we have some unique ones...and a very controversial one, too.
