  Case: Out of Code
I have a female student who comes to class out of dress code. My school does not enforce the code. She is either wearing half shirts with spaghetti straps, or shorts with her rear showing. I have discussed with her that some other students look up to her and that she should show them proper attire for a young lady. This does not work at all. How do I help her change her ways?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
I would probably let the student know what the dress code prefers students to wear and that her choice of attire is not up to those standards. She may fight back and say how this school does not care about the dress code. I would then see if an administrator would want to do something about her choice of attire while at school.

Comments: This is a good strategy but I think in saying that the dress code"prefers" say it demands! Using strict ruling can make the student understand you are in charge, not them.

Comments: The author has already spoken to the student, so it is time to serve consequences rather than arguing.

Comments: This is not something I would do. The administration can not decide her outfits that she wears to school. Also the student has also been spoken to about this, and consequences should start being enforced.

Comments: Absolutely. Talk to the student, go over the dress code, and make them feel like they are the adult to make the decision that will impact their status and grades.
