Torn jeans? Not acceptable.
Striped polos? Now acceptable.
But sweatpants are still a no-go.
The Wylie ISD board examined the updated dress code for students and faculty at its March 22 meeting, with shirts, pants, sweatshirts and sweatpants among the many articles of clothing that the district scrutinized when drafting its latest rules. Trustees will vote on the proposed 2021 dress code at their April 19 meeting.
A district-wide committee to study the dress code met three times, beginning in December, to look at which clothing would be acceptable for students and staff members. Emphasis centered on revising the dress code to address trends.
“We do it every two years,” said Scott Winn, assistant superintendent for student services. “We didn’t do it last year because of COVID. Last year would have been our second year (of the two years), so this is our second year.”
He said district officials always try to listen to people on the dress code and then see what the trends are and try to move forward.
