Why do some schools require uniforms and others don’t?

Posted by:

Requiring school uniforms is a site-based decision, but it is not made lightly. When schools are considering requiring uniforms they undergo an in-depth process to involve students, families, and staff in the decision. This includes public meetings at the school and an opportunity for all families to vote on the decision. If your school requires uniforms and the costs are prohibitive, you are urged to reach out to your teacher, counselor, or principal and the school will work with you to make sure your child has a uniform.
