no facail hair allowed on the students along with male teachers are allowed basic facial hair but it must be kept neat and trimed .. neat and trim haircuts for all male students and treachers.. no hair touching the collar of the shirt for maile personal

this part is gear toward both men and women and students in the school ..no wild styleing of the hair is allowed .. no corn rows or deadlocks or braids along other typles of hair styles hair must be kept in a reasonable fashion for the school year..

the hair style code goes for all the people in the school ..that means men and women and the student hair is to be kept in a pony tail or kept in the way that it does not distract from the learning . ..also the makeup issuse on female and female students basic done in a reasonable look ..nothing wild or outlandish..is allowerd for school


no other clothing will be allowed to be worn at school ..you allowed to wear your team sports jersey at the prep rally and that it no other school sports wear is allowed on school grounds dureing school hours..

winter along with the lightweight fall and spring time jackets will be plain no markings on the jacket in a black color with a plain black color watch cap style beanie for wear along with plain color black gloves for wear around school dureing the winter months .

.there was a comment about letting them wear the school letterman or vasity style jackets with the school emblem on it but no hoodies underneath it ..but they have not made there minds up on the part yet..

color photo id cards to be worn by the student at all times to be able to quickly tell who belongs and who does not belong. in the school .with the units are not worn dureing a gym or other sports program ..

when a student is transferred into the school they are give so many days to start to wear the school unifrom or they are sent home intill they have it ..

no cellphones allowed into the classroom ..all cellphones are to be left in the locker dureing school hours ..

the school has parents lineing up to enroll there childern into the school for the school board has voted to try this program for two year test to see if it works ....

one of the teachers where saying that if a outside shows up ..he will be spoted very quickly by everyone for he will stand out in the way he dress and that will give the school people a heads up that he does not belong there or they need to go over and see why they are on school grounds..
so do you think that this type of strict dress code rules will spead to other schools..


the person who put this all togerther was a 35 year female who was in private schools that came over to the public school system and she got them to trying something from a private school set up about the school dress code ..i think it should be watched and if work put into place in all the schools to stop worrying about who has the lastest fashion unit ..

she has sit down a set of rules and punishment for the doing something wrong dureing school hours..

The local school district went to a similar rule. It seems to have worked pretty well in that it hasn't caused any problems. Whether it solved any? I don't know.

One thing I can't stand, though, is the kids and parents who stomp their foot and say, "but we should be allowed to express ourselves." Sorry, but I don't pay all those school taxes to give you a forum to "express" yourself.

I believe that a standar dress code or uniform is a good thing these days. I prevents a lot of problems on many different fronts. there is no "my clothes are better than yours", there is no outsiders, it's just good sense. It also is much less expensive for the parents and uniforms can be handed down as well. I think uniforms are a better option than what is proposed and I believe that teachers should be wearing something different to make them stand out as authority figures. It's good to see some common sense involved in the process and that it trickles down even to things such as towels and shoes.

A lot of people think it hurts the childs sense of individuality and another group thinks that it is too similar to many socialist regimes (think Russia), but in all actuality, school is an institution, not a social fashion show. The less attention a child can draw with clothes, the better. Individuality should be about a person's personality and intelligence than what they are wearing.

Overall we are not in favour of public schools anyway.

However there are a great many parents who refuse to parent their chidlren and who wish their children to be raised and trained by the state institution. For them, I do think that school uniforms are a good idea.

the lady who put this togerther came out of the Los Angles school system .. she is 35.years old ...i did not find that out in the end of the reading of the article that someone had sent me about the school system that she came out of a rough area there ....

her comment was when ask why she was picking on the students with cornrows and braids or locks style of hair ..she made the comment i will not have in the my school for it a sign of the local gangbangers and there followers she says..then she goes iam a black women do you see me in cornrows or braids and dressing like a some type of lose women ..she tell the person in the article if you want to be take as person who can get things done dress and look the part along with speak like you have the basic knowage and ideas on the subect

no street style speach will be spoken in the school ..english and english only will be spoken ..use of slang or street words in the school is not allowed for the teach must lead with the knowage of pass onto the next gen of kids the right way to speak propler english and not street slang will not cut in the business world ..

this is part that made really start reading the sent articles ..if we are go be take steps forward as a race in this world then we need to look and act the part instead of what the tv and movies tell people about us..

she got my vote ..she pretty hard core when it comes to her way of thinking ..she is a really a person who belives that the kids in the school now days can not survive the comeing inprovement of the tech that is comeing down the road ..

she also belives that there is no free ride when it comes to the sports program in the school ..just because you can shoot 3 pointers all days does not mean that you get a free ride from the rest of the school because your on the basket ball team..

she made the comment about that if your do a after school program you must have a basic level of a b.-- to be able to play or do after school program fall below that and you are not allow to play or doing thing intill the grade is bought up..

in the article the schoo board allready was getting request by the parents to inroll the kids in the program in the school there at that school instead of shipping them off to another school in the area..

i have to say this about the article ..the person who wrote the article made her out to a rasict type of person when it came to her own race.. but i get the point that she trying to make about getting the next generation ready for the life after school where they have to go out and face the troubles as a adult now and they are not really ready for that plus she tells it like it is ..if you want to make in the business world look and act and dress and talk like you know what you are doing to get you foot in the door ..she quoted bill cosby on a few things ..she said he tells it like it is and the rest of the people in our world does not want to hear that ..

The school districts in my area have been doing ti for years. We didn't when we were in school. I honestly do not see a difference. Even without the uniforms there was still a dress code. If you were in violation of the dress code your parents would have to come and get you or you would sit in the office all day.

The only problem I have with the uniforms is they are impossible to find. The local stores get them in before the school year but don't keep them in stock afterward.

When we lived in Scotland our eldest son attended their public school, we found that for him to wear their uniform was cheaper. And it made getting him ready for school much easier.

Years later raising foster-children [where the state required that they attend public-funded schools] it became a night-mare to get them ready for school each day. As well as the brand-consciousmess and expense of buying street clothes. It would have been far easier for us, and cheaper if they had been in uniforms.

Im telling ya, uniforms would make my life so much easier.

I have 3 kids and keeping their clothes straight with mathing outfits and laundry is not easy.

My son is in 8th grade and shopping is a nightmare! I get tired of shopping around to make sure he has the 'right' t-shirt and jeans to feel like he fits in at school. Kids this age are very self-consious.
