Blue Jeans Now Allowed At Beaufort County Schools

Students in one school district in Eastern Carolina will now be allowed to wear blue jeans to school.

Last night the Beaufort County School Board relaxed the student dress code for the 2013-14 school year.

Pants can now be any color and yes, blue jeans will be allowed. But those pants cannot have holes in them, nor can they sag or be too tight. The school system says belts will not be required.

The school board didn't make any changes to their policy on shirts. Collars are still required, though the shirts do not have to be tucked in.

The old dress code was adopted in 2007 and limited pants to tan khaki, solid navy blue or solid black.
