“She is extremely petite, so trying to find clothes that fit her is difficult,” Hull said.“I just don’t think it’s appropriate to send her to school in sweatpants. It’s dumbfounding, I just don’t get it.”
Franklin Township Principal Matt Vandermark released a statement announcing the dress code change.
The new rule is that students must wear pants with back pockets.
Any pair of pants that have “back pockets” will be considered appropriate to wear at school. Items of clothing that clearly have no back pockets and are forming fitting will be considered a violation of the school’s dress code. Examples of this include yoga pants and leggings.
The updated dress code is to “ensure student clothing is not too revealing and supports the positive intrinsic characteristics we hope to build in our students.”
