RENO, Nev. (KRNV & Mynews4.com) -- As the Washoe County School District fights a parent-filed lawsuit over school uniforms, students and teachers weigh in on how the new mandate is working for them.
At the beginning of the school year, we brought you the controversial mixed-reactions about school uniforms from parents whose children attend Roy Gomm Elementary School. Six month later, we are following up with parents there.
In a survey recently conducted by staff at Roy Gomm, most parents seemed to be pleased with the school uniform policy. Here are the results:
80% of parents like the current uniform policy
11% of parents are neutral
9% of parents dislike the current uniform policy
For 8-year-old Roy Gomm student, Ethan Earl, his school uniform is something he takes pride in. Ethan has autism and just three years ago, he could not do the most simple tasks. With the help of intensive therapy and the CLS program at Roy Gomm, he now can do most things a typical developing student can do, including putting on his school uniform.
