LANCASTER - Garrard County Board of Education is moving forward - slowly - with discussions about school uniforms.
The board, which appears amenable to some sort of uniform policy, decided Tuesday night to hold a public meeting in early August to discuss the issue.
"I feel very strongly that if you're going to change something like this you need to get public input," said Superintendent Ray Woolsey.
Board member Greg Crutchfield broached the idea in March and received an enthusiastic response from the board.
But others said some parents have since approached them with concerns about uniforms.
Woolsey said a woman who dresses her overweight daughters to minimize their size would be humiliated by uniforms.
Board member Gary Oliver said he's been told uniforms would be more expensive.
Those objections, Woolsey said, are only the beginning.
"There are probably hundreds of things we have not thought of," Woolsey said.
Since the uniform idea appeared, the high school and middle school have been drafting dress codes. None has been adopted.
