Re: the Confederate flag question, if a student were to walk into school wearing the Confederate flag (or a depiction of it), would he or she be told to remove the clothing? I understand the code of conduct restricts, “racially or ethnically provocative or divisive symbols,” but does that include the Confederate flag? If not, why? If so, shouldn’t it be explicitly outlined? The verbiage is a bit ambiguous. Thanks!

A.  The verbiage is meant to be more encompassing than limiting to only certain items listed. Yes, the confederate flag is a symbol that is not to be worn or displayed in Shen schools per policy.
