NEW YORK — A strict dress code adopted by a Staten Island school has resulted in 200 detentions in the last two weeks.

A city Department of Education spokeswoman tells the New York Post the new “Dress for Success” policy at Tottenville High School was a “local decision” made “at the discretion of the Principal.”

The DOE officials say parents signed off on the policy before the start of the new year. But some parents say the policy has backfired.

The paper says Principal Joseph Scarmato didn’t return calls seeking comment.

Ninety percent of the detained students have been girls. The code covers everything from tank tops and short-shorts to hoodies and sunglasses.

District 31 Superintendent Aimee Horowitz says skimpy clothing is banned because it “interferes with the learning and teaching process.”
