(Salt Lake City, KSL News) -- The Jordan School District has a new dress code for graduation.

The school board adopted guidelines last night that will affect this year's and future graduations.

The new dress code says students must wear the school's cap and gown and be fully dressed underneath.

Students can't wear clothing, accessories or jewelry that draw attention away from the dignity of the event.

Mantles, cords, insignias or medals can be worn only if they've been awarded by the school.

Officials say the new standard answers all the questions about what can be worn to graduation.

"Every year we get a lot of questions about what kids can wear. Do they have to wear the regular cap? Can they wear a different cap? Can they wear other things along with graduation?" says Cal Evans with the Jordan School District.

The new dress code will affect nine high schools in the area.
