Sharp explained that a standardized dress code is not the same as a uniform, and that the guidelines are a little less strict.

Standardized dress is exactly what it says…there are certain types of clothing that are prescribed, but it’s not quite as tightly aligned as a uniform.

Dunbar College Preparatory Academy was one of the first schools to introduce a standardized dress code, and it was very well-received. Shard said that the goal of the standardized dress code is to reduce the time administrators have to spend enforcing the dress code and, ultimately, allow the students to spend more time in instruction.

Sharp said that the schools are in various stages of discussing the possibility of a new dress code. Atkins Middle School sent out a letter to the parents informing them on the possible changes. As of now, there are no plans to introduce a standardized dress code in LISD high schools.
