'Business casual' on the horizon for Pinkerton Academy students?
The "Unified Dress Code," as it is now called, would narrow the choices and eliminate denim for day-to-day wear, Anderson said. Students might still be able to occasionally wear jeans as part of more casual or "dress-down" days, she said.
First, students were asked: "If you were not required to purchase our Unified Dress code clothing from a single store or vendor, but to purchase it from a variety of stores, would you be in favor of a Unified Dress Code?"
The second question asked: "If you were not required to have a school logo on the clothing items, would you be in favor of a Unified Dress Code?"
"Same thing, I go out to buy a nice shirt from JCPenney — does it have to have a school logo on it?" Ahrens said.
Since it sounds similar to "uniform, " Administrators considered removing the word "unified" from the policy, Ahrens said.
At an on-campus fashion show earlier this year, Student Council members modeled clothing that would be allowed under the proposed dress code, including polo shirts and even a sweater vest. Some students said they liked the proposed options, Ahrens said. Others said, "I wouldn't wear that in a million years," he said.
