Dress code changes
ALL AN ACHIEVABLE DREAM MID/HIGH STUDENTS
We need a more flexible dress code. Studies show that when students are more comfortable, they learn better. Just look at all the other high schools. They get to wear almost whatever they want and are still accredited. As students, it is hard to find clothes that already fit the guidelines. We are not adults. We cannot go and buy new clothes every time the administration decides to change the dress code. Joggers and shorts during the warm season are easy clothing items to throw on. Every time students find creative ways to incorporate our own unique style, our creative expression is stifled. We are tired of having the rules change every time we try to make the dress code work for us. One minute we can wear something and the next minute we cannot. This is an issue than needs to be solved. Here is what would like to see removed for the list of prohibited items:
Joggers. These pants come in many colors, Khaki, black navy blue, and more. The elastic waist grows with us. This is helpful for people of different sizes. People come in different shapes. Unlike regular pants, pants with an elastic waist can grow with a person. People with a bigger waist can stretch the elastic, and those with smaller waists can pull the strings to fit their bodies.
Shorts. Currently, shorts are only wearable from May 1 to September 30. In our region, temperatures exceed 75 degrees through October and April. WE would like to request a rule change that will allow shorts from April 1 to October 30th. Females are allowed to wear dresses and skirts during the warmer season, but males have to wear pants. This is unfair.
Teachers and students alike can agree that An Achievable dream lacks clear communication. We would like to request that all dress code rules be relayed to students before punishing them as well. We should not have to play the he said she said game. PETITION WILL BE UPDATED PERIODICALLY UNTIL PRESENTED TO ADMIN.
ALL STUDENTS who sign this petition have agreed to follow the dress code rules if requests are met.
