Straps like these used to be banned,
girls wore them anyway. Sagged
pants are still banned and still worn.

In the third bullet of the James Logan High School student handbook’s dress code section, it reads:
“Students should not dress inappropriately for school activities as it detracts from the learning environment. Inappropriate clothing such as: Strapless or short blouses/shirts showing the stomach and mid-riff; see- through clothing; any low-cut tops that show cleavage: back on tops must cover the back shoulder blades: pajamas; and sagging pants/trousers/shorts. Undergarments must not be worn over outer clothing and undergarments are not to be visible. The buttocks must be covered completely.”
As many of the students and staff may realize, it is this particular rule that finds itself both under-enforced and disobeyed. It seems students disobey this rule for many reasons.
