Albany - A Dougherty County middle school considers requiring students to wear uniforms. The superintendent gave the principal of Dougherty Middle School permission to require students to wear uniforms.
Right now, only some students are wearing uniforms. But next fall, all students will have to wear a designated polo shirt with either jeans or khaki pants. Principal Thelma Chunn says uniforms will make the school safer and stop dress code problems.
"If we can implement a uniform policy here with our students, that will give us a way to identify if someone's on our campus that should not be here. It will also give us some consistency with our dress code, because that is an issue," said Principal Thelma Chunn.
Chunn says she'll soon meet with parents and students to get feedback and to see what color polo shirts the students will wear. The superintendent is only allowing Dougherty Middle to require uniforms on a test basis. Then, the school system will decided if the uniforms will be required for good.
The rest of the middle schools won't have to wear uniforms next year. Currently, only elementary school students wear uniforms.
