School Uniform Policy Survey

Many schools across the East have uniform policies now, but one county wants to know how everyone thinks it's going.

The Pitt County Board of Education is running a survey about the current uniform and appearance policy. There's a questionnaire for students and parents and a separate one for staff.

The survey aims to help the school board gather data and improve the uniform policy, which went into full effect at the start of this school year.

    To me i hate the school uniforms idea, i just think that this was just stupid. How do our clothes distract us for school work. Aint nobody going to stare at a shirt for a whole period. The behavior rate has gone down but more people are getting sent out for Dress Code instead of behavior.

    I'm a student at north pitt high School and I and other students I know dislike the policy of wearing UNIFORMS. we (students) Like to express our self while learning in school making us wear uniforms is really a big deal to us students. It's about every day students at my school getting in troble because of the dress code of wearing uniform and i think it will be less drama if we canm just go back to wearing our own clothes and not UNIFORMS... THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

    The policy of wearing a uniform is great and should be continued. We recently moved from New York and this policy has been implicated for several years. There's no competing among students and it's an one time expense for the entire year. The uniform saves parents on constance buying of clothes and in this economy we need all breaks possible. Unfortunately, there are sum students who try to change the policy by wearing their pants hanging off their butts and the shirts are way to big. If the schools would enforce shirts that fit and pants not hanging below the waist line is would be even better. Here in North arolina at least there are several choices of colors for shirts and pants to be worn and you can wear shorts. In New York there was a fall-winter color and a spring-summer color. The wearing of shorts is just prohibited, period. Think about it, you will save dollars in the long run.

    Are you kidding? The language and typos used in your post is exactly what people are shaking their heads about. If you want respect from others, you have to respect yourself first, which it seems you do not by reading your post. I am happy you have a good job with your best friend, but even he / she is going to expect you to act / speak professional on a job site. Please, stand tall, speak / spell correctly and you will get alot farther. Continue to use the spelling / grammar you used, you may not have that job for long. Even best friends need to know they can depend on each other to act appropriately in any situation, especially when it may cost them work on a specific jobsite. I am not trying to criticize you, just give some simple advice.

    Very, very well said. Alpha is another example of people being cruel and speaking before thinking. And to Anonymous on Mar 23, 2009 at 09:27 AM, thanks for the information. I'll be calling JCPenny.

    My child doesn't love having to wear uniforms, but I think they have made a positive difference at school as well as making it so much easier getting ready in the mornings. I have looked around at different stores and found the best clothes for the lowest prices at JCPenney. The regular uniform pants are longer waisted, but the Arizona uniform pants are shorter waisted and are allowed since they do not have any labels on the outside. The Polo shirts are fine, but the Arizona brand polos are shaped for girls and look better, but still have no labels outside. Pants from $12 up and shirts from $9 up. I'm not getting any commission from JCP, but have found them to be the best source for uniform clothing.

    There is no pleasing you people... IF your kid isn't stupid or below average then obviously my post wasn't meant for you... If you took it as an insult.. oh well ..boohoo... what's for dinner?

    Alpha - get a grip. Why so personal? You seem to think you are the only one allowed to have an opinion? We don't really know you and your personal life need not really be reflected on this page but since you put it out there it explains a great deal about you and your posts. I wish your daughter well. The uniforms have nothing to do with the grades. Step into the schools more often and see that those that follow the policy have good grades most of the time and those that don't follow it...don't. Most parent are worried about grades but the opportunity allowed for uniform policy posting??? Perhaps you need to brag about your own?? Dunno - your posts quite frankly make no sense at all. Some of us could buy and sell every uniform shop in the county and have ivy league educations thank you very much but we still don't like the policy. You pretty much put your education or lack there of...right here for everyone to see. Feel better or continue to feel sorry for yourself. It's pretty clear!

    I'm glad that you daughter is doing so well. However, that doesn't mean that the rest of our kids are stupid, as you put it. My son does very well and works to his potential. He has made only 1 B his entire middle and high school years. I'm very proud of him. I don't brag about the fact that he wants to hire his friends to "clean the bathrooms" of his company. Besides, there's no shame in that kind of work. As long as you do the best you can in whatever job you do, there is no shame. I can understand how some parents would that what you said as an insult. "They have you worried about the wrong thing while your kids are stupid, and below average." There is no need for this type of name calling.
