Standard Student Attire Vote Approaches for Liberty Students

Standard Student Attire Vote Approaches for Liberty Students

 

By Brendan Becker, Liberty High School

Wish that Standard Student Attire (SSA) could go away or stay around for good? Well, now it’s time for students’ families to decide whether they want to keep enforcing it or lose it.

The vote on the matter occurs every four years. The SSA ballot will be sent to students’ homes this April, as the last vote was held in 2008.

SSA was introduced to Liberty nearly 10 years ago when the school was still new to the district.

“Standard student attire has been in effect at this school ever since it opened and at the time it was known as Dress for Success,” Principal Jeff Geihs said.

A student and her parents sued the Clark County School District in 2004 because they asserted Standard Student Attire was unconstitutional and a violation against student rights.
