HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Huntsville’s Chapman School students will not wear uniforms when they start class this fall.
Wednesday night, through the automated school phone message system, Chapman School Principal Glen Bryant announced the results of a parent telephone survey on school uniforms conducted last month.
In the one-minute message, Bryant announced the majority of parent respondents voted they prefer the current Huntsville City Schools dress code over school uniforms.
Principal Bryant said he consulted with the Chapman PTSA who agreed the school would not require its student to wear uniforms in 2012-2013.
Huntsville City Schools Superintendent Dr. Casey Wardynski made the decision with the approval of school board members last year to allow each school in the system to decide for themselves whether to adopt uniforms.
The school system’s dress code is laid out in the Huntsville City Schools Code of Conduct. Copies of the code of conduct handbook are available at every school office.
In March, Chapman Elementary celebrated its 50th year. In 2012-2013 Chapman Middle and Chapman Elementary will form Chapman School under one administration as part of Huntsville’s school consolidation and rezoning plan.
