Catasauqua Area studying school uniform policy The Catasauqua Area School District is reviewing its dress code and considering requiring students to wear uniforms as soon as next school year. The school board’s Policy Committee met this month to discuss the pros and cons of uniforms. School Director Mary Alice Hartranft said at the regular board meeting Monday that the committee believes uniforms would level the playing field among students and replace the current student dress code, which is difficult to enforce.
Dress codes will not affect ability to learn

I am writing in regards to Paul Carpenter’s article “Do only students get free speech?” I think he makes a very good point about uniforms in school and how they can help children focus on their scholastic tasks. However, the Palmerton School District does not have a uniform policy nor does it seem that the people there want one. So the responsibility, for what the children are wearing to school, falls on the parents. Moser Of The Morning Call November 7, 2008
Panther Valley is the latest school district to adopt a uniform dress code. The school board voted 9 0 Thursday to require students and teachers to wear only black, white, gold or gray dress shirts and dress pants to school starting next fall. The vote follows the adoption of a similar policy that neighboring Tamaqua Area School District enacted in 2005. Tamaqua’s policy does not apply to teachers. Committee Chairman Anthony DeMarco said uniforms are being considered in response to requests from parents wanting a more stringent dress code. District Superintendent Rosemary Porembo said other advantages to the policy might be cost to parents, unity, discipline, equality and a better learning environment. Officials said they hope to gather input from parents,
students and teachers before acting on the policy, which likely would include a dress code of khaki or black pants and black, white, or gold collared shirts. “I’m hoping parents and the PTO come out to the meeting, and I hope students come to express their interests,” said committee member Wayne Fritzinger Jr. “I’m afraid it’s going to be one of those things where people don’t say anything until after the fact, and then they’ll complain.”Dress codes now in style?

Panther Valley School District is considering implementing a dress code that would require students and teachers to wear uniforms of similarly colored pants and shirts. The topic was addressed briefly Wednesday at a meeting of the school board’s Education Committee. The code would allow only black, gold or white polo shirts with black or khaki pants.
Students wondering whether they’ll have to wear uniforms in the fall in Northampton Area School District will have to wait another two weeks: On Monday, school board members postponed their decision on dress code changes. District officials, who have discussed dress code options since July 2006, said for weeks they’d pick a policy at Monday’s meeting. But when administrators accidentally left the item off Monday’s agenda, most board members agreed to push the vote back to April 2.
