Should  middle schools switch  to a standardized dress code? On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, Nancy Sharp, the director of communications  and community relations explained that if the change occurs,  the rules would not be as “tightly aligned” compared to a school where the students wear a uniform.

“I think the goal is to reduce the amount of time that administrators spend enforcing a dress code and therefore students are spending outside of class while maintaining and preserving the integrity of the classroom.  And it’s trying to define for each campus where does that lie.

Sharp said that the standardized dress code has been well-received at schools that have it, and families report they spend less on clothes.
