WESTON -

It's been about a month since the Lewis County Board of Education approved a stricter dress code for the teachers.

This new policy included no blue jeans, regulated skirt lengths, and made the dress code stricter overall.

On Monday, the board discussed the dress code again and made some clarifications.

It was said that the dress code does not apply to custodians, cooks, bus drivers, or maintenance employees.

It was also made clear that the dress code is to be enforced on teachers and administration whenever students or parents are present.

General Supervisor Chris Derico said it was important to clarify this early in the year.

"I think for most anything when you are starting a brand new school year, with the way our school years work, it's a brand new year, everyone's got a fresh start whether you are talking about the students, the teachers, the academic year, athletics, it's always important to get started on the right foot and that was our goal with this," said Derico.

Derico said the board will review the policy at the next administrative council meeting to make sure there are no problems with it.
