Back-To-School Dress Codes Revealed

It is almost time for school to begin across Eastern Carolina. WITN checked the dress codes for several county school systems to see just what students will need for the first day of school.

Most school systems require kids to wear navy, black or khaki pants or skirts and solid-colored, collared shirts.

There were some exceptions. Lenoir County Schools have guidelines, but do not require specific types of clothes.

Only the two magnet schools in Onslow County require uniforms.

In Craven County, the schools decide whether students will wear uniforms.

Pitt, Greene, Bertie, Beaufort and Martin County schools all have county-wide dress code and uniform policies.

    The bigger question here is why is it left up to the individual schools to come up with their own policy? Why do high schools and elementary schools not follow a code? Seems like they are isolating the middle schools. It is unreasonable and unfare to suggest that only middle school kids need to wear a certain uniform. If all of them are not wearing a uniform this should be considered a type of discrimination. I hate using that word but it is what it is.

    The Uniform "policy \" IS unfair . Especially to Faimilies who make less than 1000 dollars a month and are disabled . We have to buy Expensive Specific clothes ,at least 5 pairs of Everything on top of regular Clothing . And if you ty to have a bit of individualality they send you ome . These are Children . I am talking about James W Smith Elementary . It breaks there spirit and is a Form of Mind Control . It is sadistic to make our babies look like CLONES ! BAN THE UNIFORM CODE !

    Amen!!! Policies and controversies like this (and re-districting and bus stops) are exactly why we home school. It is GREAT!!!

    a childs belt was taken away, since it wasnt in compliance to the "code". it was brown with a braided loop. way to suck out all sense of creativity and personality. also, why worry about belts when more kids have pants under their butts?

    I'm all for dress code, sag your pants and wear you're skimpy clothes outside of school.

    These aren't uniforms. Just a really messed up dress code that created more problems than it solved. I really don't see how anyone can be in favor of them.

    School dress codes are great, it is one of the best thing that Martin County schools did. Some of the teachers still dress like they are going to a night club.

    Ok, so what exactly was revealed in this article? Nothing new, just reopened a sore subject that's already been beaten to death.

    those that have a problem with government telling them how to dress probably have no problem cashing the check from the government, living in government housing, eating government food and usine government cell phones.

      So, so true. I couldn't of said it better. Those are the people complaining about everything. They would rather see the kids' butts hanging out. To bad they have to pull up their pants now.
