EISD dress code is revised

Ennis fifth graders affected by new 2008-09 regulations
On May 20, the Ennis ISD Board of Trustees approved a change to the student dress code that will affect fifth graders in the 2008-2009 school year.
Trustees approved a Secondary Standardized Dress Code that covers grades 5-12. This means that next year’s fifth graders will follow this dress code instead of the Elementary Standardized Dress Code, which will now cover grades 1-4.
The major difference is that fifth graders will now be expected to wear belts and have their shirts tucked in.
“The major reason for this change is to achieve consistency for fifth and sixth grade students attending the Sixth Grade Center next year,” said Kathy Cikanek, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. “Currently, fifth and sixth grade students observe two different dress codes, which has caused some difficulties this year in enforcement.”
In the coming months, EISD will revisit the dress code in preparation for the 2009-2010 school year when the district will have two intermediate schools in place for grades 4-6.
As a result of the recent bond election, the current Sixth Grade Center will be expanded and converted into an intermediate campus, and a second intermediate school will be built on district property west of Clay Street near the current junior high campus.
The bond election also calls for the expansion of Travis Elementary, which is the district’s smallest elementary campus, as well as the construction of a new Early Childhood Center. The new Early Childhood Center will be built on the site of the former Carver school located on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. The existing Early Childhood Center will remain in operation.
