06-14-2011 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #41


Title
Request a More Restrictive Dress Code at Lockmar Elementary

Discussion

Board Policy 5511- Dress and Grooming currently states that dresses and skirts must reach mid thigh or below in length with the waistband of skirts worn at waist level. The school convened a dress code committee and is recommending all lower garments (shorts included) reach mid thigh or below in length. A consistent dress and grooming policy is necessary in order to maintain order, provide a safe school environment, and promote discipline. It is difficult to be consistent with dress code violations when the requirements are vague.



Recommendation
Approve a more restrictive dress code at Lockmar Elementary.
