Shelby County School System
United States of America

January 24, 2006

This petition implores the school board members of the Shelby County School System to take a closer look at their current dress code policy, to examine its subjectivity and unreasonable punishments.

We, the undersigned, ask for a less subjective dress code, one that distinctly defines "what is reasonable" and what is "contingent upon the discretion of the principal." We ask for more reasonable punishments.

In School Suspension, the same punishments administered for obscene language and truancy violations is far too extreme a punishment for two dress code violations. We ask for detentions and notices sent home far before the use of suspension with unexcused absences.
