School Uniform

Many school districts have chosen to require that their students wear a school uniform. This decision usually comes as a result of several factors: there may be a school security issue, there may be a tendency for some students to dress inappropriately, or there may be a wide difference in student socioeconomic status. Whatever reasoning is behind the decision to institute school uniforms, the uniform should be carefully chosen.

Most school uniforms have the same basic foundation: solid tops and bottoms. Requiring that your students wear a solid color polo, along with solid color bottoms, is a great way to establish your particular schools uniform. Another regulation that often comes along with solid color polos is the absence of any identifying logos on the front of the shirts. This rule is especially important if one of the factors for the decision to wear school uniforms is to address the issue of low socioeconomic students in your school. By not allowing more affluent students to display the logos of designer manufacturers, everyone has the same basic look.

For the bottoms of the uniform, most schools have disallowed denims, or jeans, as a way to cut down on frayed looks and jeans with holes. It truly makes the uniform appear more polished. It is also important for the male students to wear their pants at their natural waists, with a belt, if necessary. The only other aspect to consider with your basic uniform structure is whether or not you are going to allow your female students to wear skirts; and if so, how long they must be. Usually this is a decision that results in skirts being allowed, if they are knee length. Other miscellaneous rules, such as one day a week set aside for a school shirt day or if the shirts must be tucked in, vary by school district. It usually depends on how much time teachers want to spend checking the appropriateness of their students uniforms.
