Against Uniforms - Starkville School District

Preamble:
In January, 2010, the Starkville School Board narrowly passed a recommendation from Judy Couey, superintendent, to implement a policy for students and staff to begin wearing uniforms beginning August 2010.  In Spring 2009, the Starkville School District conducted a survey requesting feedback on a potential uniform policy.  The question, “Are you in favor of the use of school uniforms in Starkville School Districts?” was asked. Of the 1,527 respondents, 67.4% said “No”.  Only 25.7% supported uniforms in all grades with the remaining 6.9% supporting uniforms in only some grades.  However, the school district considers these results “inconclusive” when discussing the policy at the January meeting.


Petition:
We, the undersigned, wish to declare our opposition to a uniform policy for students and staff of the Starkville School District.  The objective of the petition is to indicate that the uniform policy is a controversial issue that warrants further input from the impacted constituents.
