LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Starting next school year, Central Middle School students will be joining Tomlinson Middle School and all of the city's elementary schools in following a modified dress code. That's after the Lawton School Board approved a change in policy Monday evening.
Central Middle School Principal Blake Thomas presented poll results to the board, showing 88 percent of teachers and 51 percent of parents were in favor of the dress code change. The dress code requires students to wear solid colored polos or crew neck shirts with no designs on it, and no denim or athletic material pants.
The board has discussed changing all middle schools to the modified dress code, and at last month's meeting, the board recommended to allow each middle school principal to decide if their school should change.
