Dress Code Changes Taking Effect in Monongalia County

Public school students in Monongalia County will have to adjust to a slight change in the dress code on Monday.
Over the last few months officials have been working to tweak the current policy when it comes to students wearing yoga pants. Yoga pants will still be allowed this year, but only if students wear them with a top that goes down to the mid-thigh level.
Towards the end of last school year concerns were brought up about leggings and yoga pants because some people felt the way they were being worn was inappropriate. Monongalia County Board of Education officials are saying clarification of what's acceptable will make it easier for teachers and administrators to enforce the rule.
Adam Henkins is the Coordinator of Students and Safe Schools for Monongalia County. He said, "It's just very simple. They know what they can go by to judge now as far as the length of the shirt. If it's not to the mid-thigh, if it's above the mid-thigh, then they're not able to wear that outfit."
School officials have also mandated that shorts and skirts must also reach the mid-thigh level.
