Volusia Co. School Board to vote on uniforms

The Volusia County School Board will decide Tuesday if students will wear uniforms next year after months of meetings and protests.
 
The board is casting its final vote on the proposed policy in DeLand at 5:30 p.m..
 
The new uniforms would include matching polo shirts, khaki pants and closed-toe shoes.
 
Supporters argue it would cut down on peer pressure as every student would be dressed the same way.
 
They also claim the policy would make each campus safer.
 
Opponents argue the board should be concentrating more on improving education and cracking down on excessive testing.
