Shorts in Fort Smith Public Schools

This is a petition for secondary school students to be allowed to wear shorts in the Fort Smith School District. The dress code is outdated and should be amended. Many other school districts in our area allow shorts. Additionally, some days the temperature can reach over 95 degrees, and at Southside we have no air conditioning in our hallways. In the dress code it states that girls may wear skirts and dresses which are fingertip length, caprees, and pants. However, boys may only wear pants or slacks. I believe knees should not be to distracting or detrimental to our education due too the fact that girls may already wear clothing that sits above the knee, and we are one of the best school districts in the state. #FreeTheKnee
