Burke County students debating the dress code

BURKE COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Burke County students may have to change the way they dress for school next fall.

The school board is looking at a dress code proposal that would ban students from wearing baggy pants but they could wear t-shirts.

However, the shirts would have to be tucked in, neat and presentable.

"To pull up and cover up, that takes care of the baggy pants and maybe showing more than you should be showing," said David Burelson with Burke County Schools.

A public hearing on the proposal is scheduled for next month.  Any changes would take effect in the fall.
