Andrews High School Goes SMOD: HP Enterprise

Andrews H.S. will adopt a standard mode of dress (SMOD) beginning next year, according to today’s High Point Enterprise. I think it is a good idea and a step in the right direction if it is complemented with a strict enforcement of rules and regulations (which is currently and obviously a big problem in many GC schools).

See this excerpt:

School administrators say safety was a major reason for the change spearheaded by the Andrews’ leadership team. For in­stance, school personnel will be better able to identify who does and doesn’t belong on campus, Principal Monique Wallace said Monday.
“We just feel like it will help the overall climate of the school,” she said.
The policy falls in line with the school system’s dress code and student appear­ance guidelines. The district gives princi­pals the authority to determine what is ap­propriate dress for the school setting.

E.C. 🙂
