How can you get parents and students to buy-in to the idea of school uniforms?
Parent and Student Support for Uniforms
Make uniforms more casual - jeans and a knit shirt
Allow students an outlet for their own expression: buttons to support political candidates, but not gang related paraphernalia
Provide financial assistance to those parents who can not afford the uniforms
Accommodate students religious beliefs. This is required by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Make your program voluntary if community pressure is too large
Institute an ‘opt-out’ provision. Not including this would probably cause a court to rule against your program unless there is proof that lesser measures are ineffective.
Make uniforms an integral part of the school safety program.
