Two Jackson County middle schools that were set to implement a uniform dress code policy next school year have changed their minds.
“After further reflection and discussion, it has been decided that the mandatory uniform dress code requirement for the (2012-2013) school year has been delayed indefinitely,” a message posted on East Jackson Middle School’s website stated. A similar message was posted on West Jackson Middle School’s website.
Both schools had approved a new policy for the next school year that would have required students to wear polo shirts in selected colors. Boys would have also been required to wear pants or shorts that are khaki, black or navy; girls would have been required to wear pants, shorts, capris or skirts that are also khaki, black or navy.
