AUSTIN, Minn. — A new school year brings new challenges for area school leaders.

But, officials at Austin High School hope they’ve found the answer to problems with the school dress code.

Students, Staff and Administrators met over the summer to simplify the code.

One of changes includes requiring students to be fully clothed from underarm to mid-thigh.

School leaders hope the simplified version helps makes things easier for staff and students.

“You can write something in words and somebody says ‘well, I’m interpreting it to mean this and I’m interpreting it to mean that,” Austin High School Principal Brad Bergstrom said. “Now, we’ve got some actual pictures of dress code violations in there.  So, people can really see what those words are meaning.”

He adds they contacted several school districts across the state and implemented some of those ideas into their dress code.
