School board votes to change dress code to provide financial relief

MILFORD, Del. – Students in Milford will have a little bit more leniency when it comes to what they wear at school. Recently, the Milford School Board voted unanimously to make some changes to their dress code in order to provide a little bit of financial relief to parents. These changes include allowing students to wear jeans, khakis, hoodies, and any color t-shirt or collared shirt. During the school board meeting, Superintendent Kevin Dickerson said that the dress code was a big concern for some parents wondering how they would pay for these items.

“At this point in time, we don’t want our families to go out and buy a lot of school clothes right now that came as a concern from numerous families that have reached out. I don’t want to burden families with that as far as going out and buying school clothes,” said Dickerson.

While students in the Milford school district are expected to kick off the school year remotely, officials are still preparing for their hopeful return back to school within the next couple of months.
