AKRON -- Dozens of North High students are sitting at home for challenging Akron's new dress code.


District leaders confirm that the students were wearing hooded sweatshirts or 'hoodies' in violation of the district's new dress code policy.

Nearly 100 students challenged the dress code by wearing hoodies to class, and some students believed that all 100 had been suspended.

According to Julia Mann, district spokeswoman, many of the students agreed to take their hoodies off when faced with discipline, but more than 30 were suspended for insubordination.

One student tells Channel 3 News that the student body was upset that the 'hoodie' policy wasn't being enforced equally from school to school.

The student also said that classmates wore hooded sweatshirts as a way to stay warm Wednesday on the first cold day of the year.

Akron's new dress code took effect in August and requires students in grades K-8 to wear polo shirts and slacks but stops short of requiring strict uniforms.

While high school students can continue to wear jeans and T-shirts, 'hoodies' were outlawed district-wide.

Eric Mansfield is following this story and will have complete details tonight on Channel 3 News.

The no-hoodie policy is retarded. If it came down to this, the school district has bigger problems it needs to worry about.

My high school had a no hoodie policy, but they were making sure kids couldn't hide guns, knives, or bombs. And the closest thing we ever had to violence using a weapon was red necks forgetting to take knives out of their pockets after hunting.

Perhaps public schools should spend less time sweating these details and more time finding ways to educate the students.

Either you have a uniform or you don't. This business of having dress codes somewhere in between the two is just bound to piss people off.

Agreed. A policy that tolerates jeans and T-shirts but bans hoodies makes little sense to me as well.
