School dress code bill moves on to Iowa Senate

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) --  A school dress code bill is moving on to the Senate after House approval Tuesday.

The measure was brought up after parents challenged Waterloo's dress code. The State Board of Education agreed with those parents, saying the school board overstepped its boundaries according to the current law. The dress code which is set to be implemented district-wide next fall, has since been revised.

This new bill would give school districts the ability to prescribe a standard dress code if the board determines the policy is necessary or would improve the health, safety, or educational environment.
