JANESVILLE, Wis. -

Some schools have dress codes for students, but starting next year public schools in Janesville will start enforcing dress codes for teachers.

The new rules approved Tuesday say teachers won't be able to wear jeans, shorts, flip-flops or jogging suits. Nor can they wear clothes that are provocative, ragged or that allow undergarments to be visible.

The Janesville School Board approved the new dress code by a 5-2 vote. It will go into effect July 1.

The policy calls for business or business-casual dress, which could include collared shirts, sweaters and casual slacks. Women may wear skirts, dresses, blouses and dress sandals.

Exceptions are allowed on school spirit days, casual Fridays and extremely hot days.

Employees such as physical-education teachers and maintenance workers are exempt.
