Parents appeal new dress code policy at Waterloo Schools

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Parents of 36 students are appealing the new dress code policy of the Waterloo Community School District.

The district approved the new policy in December.  It was put into place after the old policy, which said what students could wear, was ruled illegal.  The new policy, which is now in effect, outlines what clothing the district will not allow at school.

"What the district has done is they've swung the pendulum too far the other way and they have, even though they are prescriptive in their language, they are not prescriptive in their intent and they're certainly not prescriptive in their enforcement. In other words they are not saying what can't be worn, they are still saying this is what you must where," parent Paul Smith said.
