Dress code changes recommended for Fayette County students

A committee of parents, teachers, students and administrators has suggested revisions to Fayette County’s school dress code.

A draft was presented to the Board of Education on June 19 following a committee meeting on June 6. The changes, aimed at making standards more modern and consistent, include allowing shorts or skirts to fall at “mid-thigh” rather than just “fingertip” length and requiring leggings or yoga pants to be worn with shirts of that length as well. It would also ban hats, caps, visors, hoods or sunglasses from being worn indoors.

The board will vote on the measure on July 24.
