Thanks for your email first of all. I'm always happy to see young people and leaders like yourself access the system to try to make it work better for them and their fellow students. So, to that end, I hope I can supply you with some useful information to assist you in your goal/project. There are many documents that get reviewed each school year by the school district's leadership - many of them are Board of Education policies (sometimes by law such as the Anti-Bullying Policy & the Wellness Policy) and some are just processes or documents that are important and need frequent review. There are two (2) that fall into that latter category- the Student Code of Conduct (attached) and the Student Uniform Dress Code (below). Both of these are reviewed annually and then reviewed and reapproved by the Board of Education (elected governing officials). Honestly, your timing couldn't be better. These are due to be reviewed any week now and then taken back to the board in May or June for approval. Here are two people you can contact who guide this process. These are people you could email and possibly meet with in order to get plugged into the process in an authentic way. https://mai I .google.com/mail/u/0/?ul =2&ik=34435bea31 &vlew=pt&search=sent&th= 14c946f5c39550de&sl ml= 14c946f5c39550de&slml = 14c9a04059b655f3 1/4
  15. 15. Who makes the Policy ? The school board of education makes the decision of wearing the formal uniforms. At the beginning of the school year the leader of school districts makes the decision. The ideas from the leader of districts gets sent to the School Board of Education.

  21. 21. Alternative Policy #3 WWMS shouldn't have a uniform-~ · policy.
  22. 22. ane
  23. 23. Advantages The 1st alternative policy has the advantage of us expressing ourselves. The spirit wear will make all the students look different because we won't all be wearing the same clothes. ln the survey for students and teachers it shows that it helps show pride within the school. Í
  24. 24. Disadvantages Some students might wear spirit wear tops inappropriately. Which could lead to problems. Some students may get bullied because of kids wearing uniform tops instead of spirit wear tops. Spirit wear ranges from $10-$15. These could be to expensive for parents or students.
  25. 25. Advantages Of Policy #2 WWMS can be diverse with wearing jeans by having different colored jeans verses the same 2 color pants.With the uniform pants you can only wear khaki or navy so the jeans will make a difference. Student would have a choice of the two colors to wear. WWMS can show more style with ttiê type of jeans we wear. Both jeans and uniform have the same style but with jeans you can wear different colors. We could express our self better with . Jeans. L
  26. 26. Disadvantages policy #2 Students may wear ripped jeans.Wearing the ripped jeans could show things that are inappropriate. The average cost of the jeans for girls are $20-$30 The average cost of the jeans for boys are $30-$40.The cost of the jeans could be expensive for the parents or students to buy.
  27. 27. Advantages Of 2nd Alternative Policy WWMS can be diverse with wearing jeans by having different colored jeans verses the same 2 color pants. WWMS can show more style with the type of jeans we wear. Both jeans and uniform have the same style but with jeans you can wear different colors. With the uniform pants you can only wear khaki or navy so the jeans will make a difference.
  28. 28. Advantages Of 3rd Alternative Policy This can show our creativity because having a certain outfit could just show our peers our personality. lt will be more of a relaxed setting because we all look different which will allow students to focus better on academics. A relaxed setting will make a positive impact by the focus of the students.
  29. 29. Disadvantages of - 3rd alternative policy The disadvantages of 3rd alternative is that people will get bullied because of what they wear. Some finance issues may occur so some students don't have clothes other than the uniform to wear.
