What are the differences between voluntary and mandatory school uniform policies?

Voluntary school uniform policies often originate at individual schools and/or with the PTA. These policies let parents choose whether and in what circumstances their children will wear school uniforms. There is no reprimand for students who do not wear uniforms. Voluntary policies often involve fewer legal issues, including the requirement to buy uniforms for students who cannot afford them.

Mandatory school uniform policies are adopted by the school district and usually require all students at participating schools to wear specific clothes and colors at all times. In most public schools, these policies have provisions for students (with parental consent) to opt out of the uniform requirements due to religious or health reasons. Mandatory polices without an "opt- out" could be vulnerable legal challenges. View the government's Manual on School Uniforms.

Who wears Classroom School Uniforms?

Classroom School Uniforms are worn by students in Public, Charter, Parochial, Private and Religious schools nationwide and are sold through local retailers and on the Internet. Whether our polo's are worn plain or a local retailer embroiders our items with a school's logo, students from pre-school to high school wear our uniforms. With year round availability and sizing ranging from 2T through 3X Adult, Classroom School Uniforms is the brand both students and parents prefer. With expandable waists, double knee pants and stain resistant fabrics, even children who go to school without a dress code program often wear Classroom.

How do we start the discussion about school uniforms?

When a school, school district or PTA starts discussing school uniforms, the group often forms a special committee (consisting of students, educators, parents and administrators) to gather information on school uniform policies. Some helpful practices during this stage include:

 

  • Polling and questioning the school community for input
  • Observing other schools with uniform programs
  • Interviewing parents and educators who have been through the process
  • Understanding legalities of financial assistance and exemptions
  • Discussing the benefits of uniform programs

Our school uses a logo, can Classroom's products be embroidered?

Yes, many private schools use our products. Since many schools have their shirts embroidered at their local retailer, retailers purchase our products and embroider on site.

What do I do with uniforms my child has outgrown?

Many schools we have worked with have set up a "uniform closet" where parents donate uniforms that their children have outgrown. This often helps strengthen a school's uniform program by ensuring the participation of all students and teaching the value of giving to others in need.

Who do I help disadvantaged students who cannot afford school uniforms?

There are many ways parents, PTA and school districts help students who can not afford school uniforms. Working with local charitable organizations, having fundraisers, and creating uniform closets are just a few examples. In addition, many school districts will offer grant and voucher programs which provide economically challenged students with school uniforms. School districts call upon classroom as we understand the importance in finding school uniforms in for every student. Our experience working with districts such as the Dallas Independent School District and Toledo Public Schools has been helpful to other districts.
