Summary

The bill allows a preschool, public school, or public college or
university student to wear objects of cultural or religious significance as
an adornment at a graduation ceremony.
The bill prohibits a preschool, public school, or public college or
university from restricting what a student may wear under the student's
required graduation attire.
The bill allows a preschool, public school, or public college or
university to prohibit a student from wearing or displaying an adornment
that is likely to cause substantial disruption of, or material interference
with, a graduation ceremony, but the prohibition must be the least
restrictive means necessary to accomplish a specifically identified
important government interest.
Prior to the start of the 2024-25 school year, the bill requires a
preschool, public school, and public college or university to develop and
adopt a policy that aligns with the requirements of the bill.
