Recently, Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources and Student Services, Scott Winn, and the school board subcommittee on dress code met with campus leaders to discuss the current standardized dress code for staff and students. The committee, chaired by Trustee Joe Stooksberry, presented their findings and recommendations at the April 20 School Board Trustee meeting.

The committee is made up of three trustees, Stooksberry, Trustee Tom Westhora and Trustee Heather Leggett.

“The main change that the subcommittee proposed was to allow jean jackets for both teachers and students,” Leggett said. “Many of the changes that have been proposed will help with enforcement and keep up with current style trends while not changing the essence of the dress code.”

During the meeting, the proposal to allow jean jackets was met with applause.

Leggett said the main influence over changes is the input that the committee receives from the public, students, teachers and administrators.

“There are minor changes that we have made to socks, denim jackets etc. that don’t compromise the intent of the dress code,” she said. “Yet make everyone happy.”

Additional changes include zippered shirts may now be worn; socks with stripes, checks, designs, lettering or wording and joggers may be worn.
