Valdosta - Short skirts, low cut blouses and baggy shorts might be a thing of the past in Valdosta Schools.
The Valdosta Board of Education is looking to make minor modifications to the current dress code. When it comes to baggy clothing, administrators say it's not only inappropriate, it could become a safety issue.
"With the baggy clothes and the baggy shirts and those things,they have the ability to more easily hide weapons on their person than they would if they tucked their shirt tails in and wore normal pair of jeans and attire," said Brett Stanton, principal of Valdosta High School.
The Board of Education will vote on the changes at the September 27th meeting.
