Grand Rapids Public Schools
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - The Grand Rapids public school district says it plans to phase in a dress code over the next three years requiring all students to wear uniforms.
The West Michigan district detailed plans for the dress code on its website. The move is part of the district's transformation plan.
The district says students in all elementary and K-8 schools will need them this fall for the 2013-2014 school year, then middle school students for the 2014-2015 school year. High school and alternative school students will need uniforms for the 2015-2016 school year.
The district already has eight schools that require uniforms.
