Schools Fighting Provocative Prom Dresses

Schools Fighting Provocative Prom Dresses, “It seems kind of petty,” Cindi Lee, an Algebra teacher at Southmore High School outside Oklahoma City, told the Journal, “but we really do want them to understand we are holding them to a high standard.”
Administrators at the school have put together a twelve-page power-point presentation with close-cropped images to show students exactly what the rules are. “Words don’t mean much to them,” says Lee. Other schools are using posters and illustrated handouts.
Typical prom dress fails include gowns that are shorter than three inches above the knee, have low backs, are sheer, or have thigh-bearing slits.
Chaperones will be on the lookout for sneaky teens trying to skirt the regulations. Ginger Lawrence an assistant principal in Lee County High School in Leesburg, Georgia, plans to bring a ruler and ask girls to measure themselves if their hemline appears to be cut too high above the knee.
Sunnyvale High School, which is located outside of Dallas, Texas, enforces a dress code that clearly states that fabric inserts may not be sewn or pinned on a gown-since girls are known to rip them out once they make it into the dance.
