Appropriate attire is recommended for students both for attending classes and for the profession for which they are training. Please note that certain programs have specific dress requirements that must be adhered to (i.e. Cosmetology, Construction, Culinary Arts and Health Care).

Where to Go with Concerns:
LAUSD is committed to providing a safe and civil learning environment, free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying. If you feel that any of your rights under the law are being violated, report it to an administrator. The Administration of WVOC firmly believes that each student has the right to visit a counselor or administrator to discuss his/her concerns. A Suggestion/Concern Form, available in the Main Office, serves as the primary system for documenting and resolving student, staff, or visitor concerns or suggestions. Each form is reviewed by the administration.
