By Carrie Kollar, Accountability Committee Co-Chair
The Accountability Committee has several sub-committees working to create proposed policies, solicit information for the school, etc. We would like to give all parents the opportunity to provide feedback prior to the proposals being finalized.
The school environment sub-committee has been working hard to re-vamp the existing dress code. The focus was to maintain a desired level of respect and professionalism with a basis in D’Evelyn’s values, while creating a standard of dress that is both gender neutral and enforceable. It was with these goals in mind that the sub-committee reviewed policies from other schools, other school districts, and solicited direct input from our community (teachers/students/parents). Differences from the current standard of dress include a change in length requirement and how it is measured, as well as how overall coverage is determined. These changes were made in order to create a standard of dress that furthered the values of D’Evelyn while also doing the following: having buy-in by all parties (staff, students, and parents), addressing complaints and incorporating suggestions as appropriate, and creating a proposed policy that can be enforced by staff members. Also included is a final provision giving the administration the right to make final determinations regarding the appropriateness of dress in the context of the values and goals in the standard. We understand that we might not be able to anticipate everything that our kids might want to wear and this will allow administration to address situations not specifically covered in the policy.
We would like to obtain additional input from parents/community members to assist in the process. You can find a draft of the proposed policy at this link: Proposed Dress Code
You can email any comments/feedback directly to Carrie Kollar at firstname.lastname@example.org. If submitted feedback via email please send no later than February 14, 2020. We will also be soliciting input at the Accountability meeting on February 11th.
The Accountability Committee advises both the Principal and the Steering Committee by evaluating the schools effectiveness and researching pertinent issues.
