Students in Waterloo, Iowa will have to tuck in their shirt, wear pants no more than one size too big and leave the steel-toe boots at home.

In a 3-2 vote Monday, the school board approved regulations that fill in the details of a dress code policy for its schools beginning in the fall of 2011.

The policy was approved three weeks ago in a similar vote.

The regulations include specifics about the solid color tops and bottoms required under the policy, along with footwear, jackets and other clothes. It also has a list of items prohibited, including no sleeveless shirts, no jeans and no sandals.

Consequences for students out of compliance could range from time away from normal school activities to out-of-school suspension.
