School Common Student Dress Code

Cesar Chavez Language Academy’s Common Dress Code adheres to Santa Rosa City Schools’ Board Policy 5132 and Administrative Regulation 5132.  It is expected that students will come to school appropriately attired including a neat, clean, and complete dress code. We ask that the clothing be sized appropriately.


The suggested school attire, including styles and colors, applies to all students.

  1. Parents that require a waiver are encouraged to meet with the Principal one week prior to two weeks after the start of the school year.
  2. Parents requiring financial assistance are encouraged to meet with the Principal to come up with a mutual plan for obtaining financial help. Every effort will be made to assist students who need financial assistance.
  3. Our goal is to have a clothing exchange program during each academic year.
  4. Our goal is to have clothing with the CCLA logo available for purchase at the school.

We ask that parents make every effort to see that their children arrive at school in the proper attire. If a student arrives out of uniform, the teacher will send home a form identifying the issues. The first occurrence is a warning. If there are future violations, the parent will be required to bring the appropriate clothing to school before the student can be admitted to class. Repeated violations will require a parent/teacher/principal conference. If there is an extenuating circumstance the parent should communicate directly with the Principal.
