Common Core Standards
Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called Common Core State Standards. Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.California Department of Education page for students, parents, and guardians with information pertaining to the Common Core Standards

We have been informed by our school police department that logo's that have "LA" or "Skin" could have ties to being gang related therefore we will no longer allow clothing to have those logos.
