05-25-2010 Special School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #69


Title
Request a More Restrictive Dress Code at McNair Magnet School

Discussion
Board Policy 5511 - Dress and Grooming currently allows students in grades 7-12 to wear flip-flops or bedroom slipper type shoes.  The school convened a dress code committee as required by procedure to discuss injuries that had occurred at the school related to other students stepping on the heel of student's wearing flip-flops or bedroom slippers.  The committee recommended for safety reasons that students may only wear sandal type shoes or flip-flop type shoes that have a heel strap in place.  Further discussion on this matter can be found in the attached form 5511 F1 completed by the school. 

Recommendation
Allow McNair Magnet Schools dress code committee's recommendation that all flip-flop type shoes be banned unless they have a heel strap in place.
