This petition is for everyone who thinks that the Standard Mode of Dress at Northeast Guilford High School is unjust and unfair towards all students and has many problems that need to be corrected in order to restore what was once a decent school.
We, the undersigned, call on the Guilford County School Board to repeal the Standard Mode of Dress (SMOD) at Northeast Guilford High School for the 2008-2009 school year.
It has come to my attention that the Standard Mode of Dress, also known as S.M.O.D., has impeded the rights of students and their education. The school administration has taken a turn for the worse. Their decision to require uniforms has brought on many different opinions. We, the students, are the ones the administration's decision will affect. But did we have any say in the matter? No, we didn't.
In 2001 North Carolina passed legislation requiring local school boards to establish a "reasonable dress code for students." This SMOD is clearly not reasonable due to its strict guidelines. Please support a no SMOD dress code in our already positive, diverse school.
