Dress Code Gets Slight Revision
The 2016-2017 school year began with a dress code change for WHS students.
The main goal of the revised dress code was to define and modify, said principal Tyler Keener.
On page 15 of the student handbook, the new dress code states: “Students can wear hemmed sleeveless tops that cover the point of the shoulder… shorts and skirts must be mid-thigh… Students should refrain from wearing rompers.”
With the changes mentioned above, Keener believes that the new dress code is modest and appropriate, and stated, “… there are lots of classy and appropriate sleeveless shirts.”
To make this change, the administrators, particularly Amanda Terakedis, looked at other schools with similar demographics, as well as school around our area. According to Terakedis, the first school examined was Dublin High School in Columbus, one of a list including Pickerington, Wadsworth and Triway.
So far in the school year, Keener said there have been the typical dress code violations, but he, “…appreciates that students aren’t pushing the envelope.”
