Unified Works to Address Student Dress Code Concerns

Should changes be made to Kenosha Unified’s Student Dress Code? The school board is trying to answer that question.  The Kenosha Unified School Board spent its evening discussing possible changes that could be made to students’ dress code. At the heart of the discussion is the ban on yoga pants and the prohibition of leggings unless covered by dress, skirt, or similar article of clothing. Board Member Rebecca Stevens made a proposal that would change those policies completely, and also allow tank tops. Much of the other language in the current code would remain the same. The discussion about mandatory uniforms was raised but was quickly determined to not be feasible. Also a more generic dress code was proposed during public comments, which would simply direct students to dress comfortably. No decision was made by the board, however all the proposals and ideas from the meeting will be made available on-line and then another work session will be scheduled in a couple of weeks.
