Standard School Dress Code Needed?

by Larry Little

Some administrators at the Nacogdoches Independent School District feel a standard dress code would make their campuses safe and create a better learning environment and Thursday night they took the issue before the school board.

Some NISD administrators stood before the school board to give the results of a standard student dress code survey. The group conducted the study over the past few months and Thursday night they asked board members to approve putting standard dress codes in place at two Nacogdoches elementary schools.   "We have talked to other districts that have a standardize dress policy and have looked at data, discipline referrals decrease often when you have a standardize dress code. You can identify anyone who does not belong on your campus when everyone is in a standard dress," says survey conductor, Michelle Williams.

While goals of safety and making students feel socially equal were used to promote the dress code board members had mixed feelings.   "I don't think we have a problem with the dress code at our elementary school. I don't think everyone is ready for this and we have some problems that are not worked out," says NISD board member, Tom Davis.

School board members didn't make a motion on this dress code. They say more work needs to be done and they want to know more about what parents think.
