    2. Damage to school property shall result from the student's dress, or
    3. The student's dress or appearance shall create material and substantial disruption of the educational process at the school.

      In terms of this policy, disruption includes, but is not necessarily limited to:
      1. Student riotings, destruction of property, or
      2. Widespread shouting, or boisterous conduct, or
      3. Substantial student participation in a school boycott, sit-in, stand-in, walk-out, or
      4. Other related forms of activity.
