Dress Code Survey

dcs

DeSoto Independent School District will be meeting with parents and other stakeholder groups to discuss and understand sentiments regarding the district’s intent to propose a uniform-based dress code for the 2022-2023 school year.

The proposed introduction of uniforms is one of several responses the district has initiated to positively impact safety, security, climate, and culture on district campuses.

Previously, DeSoto ISD maintained a uniform-based dress code from roughly 2014 to 2018 before the dress code was relaxed.

Hearing concerns from parents and community members regarding the impact of student dress code on district perception, culture, and safety, administrators are planning to host focus groups comprised of various stakeholders led by a newly-established dress code review committee.

The committee will gather data and sentiments from two scheduled in-person meetings and one virtual meeting and develop a proposal to be presented to the district’s Board of Trustees for consideration.

Those interested may attend one of three focus group meetings on the matter:

  • 6-7 pm, Thursday, April 21, 2022, at the DeSoto High School Academy Cafeteria
  • 6-7 pm. Tuesday, April 26, 2022, at the Belt Line Conference Center
  • 6-7 pm. Thursday. April 28, 2022, via Zoom: Meeting ID: 736 641 8648 and Passcode: 072091Meeting ID: 736 641 8648

Those who are unable to attend the in-person or virtual meetings on the matter may include their sentiments via the district’s dress code review survey available via the link below:
