Md. County Considers Dress Code For Teachers

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - Washington County public school officials say they're considering a dress code for teachers.

Superintendent Clayton Wilcox told The Herald-Mail newspaper of Hagerstown Monday that he plans to ask a group of employees to formulate suggestions for appropriate attire.

School board member Jacqueline Fischer says some female substitute teachers have worn clothes that she considers too revealing.

Board President Justin Hartings says he has seen school employees in outfits that reveal their midriffs. He says that's inappropriate attire for the classroom.

Hartings says school employees should dress in a way that reflects the seriousness of their work.

Wilcox says he hopes to have some suggested guidelines in hand by next fall.
