School Board Changes Dress Policy
By Alabama Public Radio
Wetumpka, AL – The Elmore County school system has changed its dress code. The Board of Education approved the changes last week. Students will no longer be able to wear T-shirts bearing the Confederate flag, a picture of Malcolm X or any other emblems that could be considered offensive. The Elmore County Board of Education voted to change the dress code to adhere to the board's harassment policy. The policy defines harassment as anything that distracts and prevents students, teachers or faculty from completing work. Even though the new rule prohibits Malcolm X emblems, it does allow clothing depicting the Reverend Martin Luther King Junior.
