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.
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.
