MPS Students Will Wear School Uniforms Starting in the Fall

MILWAUKEE - The school board voted this evening to pass the uniform policy, 8 to 1.

Public comment from students both for and against uniforms was heard.

The basic uniform will be tan, navy, black, or khaki pants, knee length skirt or jumper, with a collared black or navy shirt. No logos or brands can be visible.

Each school may also add another allowed color.

The district will let parents know where they can buy compliant clothes for cheap and financial help will be available for families that need it.

51 schools in the district already have uniforms. There is a way for parents to opt out of the uniform policy. A school can opt out if 66% of the school community - that's students, parents, and teachers - agree.
