School uniforms under consideration


Discussions are going on to develop a school uniform program for Grand Coulee Dam district schools.

The issue has come up at the past two school board meetings, and indications are that the idea is alive and moving forward.

The teaching and support staff are generally in favor of the idea.

The board is moving forward slowly, and, as suggested by outgoing high school principal, Brandon Byers, the district should take this next year in fleshing out the idea.

The public and student body to date haven’t had an opportunity to express their feelings about school uniforms.

While nothing specific has been outlined for school uniforms, a drawing of what they might look like was circulating at Monday night’s school board meeting.

Some discussions were about each of the three levels — elementary, junior high, and senior high — having their own uniforms.

One reason given for the school uniform idea is that it would level the playing field between families who are at the higher end of the financial spectrum and poorer families.
