Volusia Co. School Board delays uniform vote after parent concerns

The Volusia County School Board is delaying its final vote on school uniforms after listening to parents' concerns Tuesday night.
 
Board members decided to add jeans to the proposed dress code. 
 
They had already planned on requiring students in grades K-12 to wear a polo or button down shirt along with khaki pants, skirts, or jumpers but with the new addition of jeans they will need to meet at least one more time before putting plans into motion for the next school year.
 
FOX 35 spoke to parents at the meeting who told us they are against the uniforms.
 
Supporters of the dress code argue it would make schools safer because staff could spot people who are not supposed to be on campus and that it would also help stop bullying.
 
The board has yet to schedule a new date for its final vote.
