  • Start by going to the school board meetings because their is usually time for parents to talk about what concerns them. They can also instruct you on what the procedures are. Good Luck!

  • Yep! The school board sets the dress code requirements. When it comes to school boards and petitions, chances are more likely the school board will win.

  • You should also talk to the other parents and find out if they are in agreement with you before you go to the Board... then you'll know if you have enough support on your side or if you'd just be wasting your time.

  • Be aware that they probably will not get to show their shoulder blades....but the boys will probably get dinged for the baggy pants and underwear. Are you sure the latter two are not against the dress code already? ALL of the things you list are against the code here.
