The Lewis County Board of Education continues to consider an employee dress code.

On Monday night the board heard from its attorney, Denise Spatafore.  She told the board that according to case law, school boards have the right to regulate what employees wear as long as the regulation is reasonable and rational. The board is considering banning shorts, blue jeans and regulating the length of skirts as part of a dress code. 

In previous meetings, teacher union representatives said case law was on their side and that any dress code would violate teachers' rights. The next board meeting will be held on July 8.  The dress code issue may or may not be on the agenda.
