Abstract

This study examined the need for a uniform dress policy at Clearview Regional High School. The subjects included 285 students along with 3 high school administrators and 65 teaching faculty and staff. The students completed a 7-item survey consisting of five structured multiple-choice questions, and two unstructured open-ended response questions. The survey also provided the opportunity for the students to express additional comments. The survey measured the students' grade level while measuring the students' opinions regarding a uniform dress policy at Clearview Regional High School. The administration and faculty completed a 7-item survey consisting of five structured multiple-choice questions, and two unstructured open-ended response questions. The survey also provided the opportunity for the administration and staff to express additional comments. The survey measured the years of educational experience of the administration in the high school and teaching staff along with the opinions of these professionals regarding a uniform dress policy for the high school students. The findings suggest that the teaching staff expressed a need for a uniform policy in the high school, while the students and administrative staff felt otherwise.
