School dress code still enforced mostly on St. Johns girls


Though the St. Johns County School Board scrubbed the district’s dress code of gendered language last year, the enforcement of the code still almost exclusively affects girls, according to records obtained by News4JAX.

Of the 245 dress code violations recorded in the St. Johns County School District since Aug. 10, 92.2% of those violations went to female students.

Records show that 96% of the violations were recorded at one of four schools: Bartram Trail High School, Creekside High School, Nease High School, and Switzerland Point Middle.
