Canady v. Bossier Parish School District

Dress Code
  • School Board implemented a dress code for 17 of the 34 schools in the district.
  • Reason was to reduce violence and improve testing scores and data would be collected.
  • Both objectives were achieved and the board decided to implement the dress code policy to all 34 schools.
  • Plaintiffs, group of parents, argued that the policy limited freedom of expression, does not improve learning, are expensive and violate religious rights.

  • District court upheld the boards’ policy.
  • Plaintiffs appealed and the State Supreme Court of LA upheld the lower court’s decision.
  • Reasons for upholding the policy:
    • Sometimes school boards’ regulation of student behavior outweighs individual students’ rights to free speech.

How to Prevent Problems
  • Collect data on student achievement before and after the policy was instituted.
