School Uniforms at Sunshine Elementary for the School Year 2020-2021

Sunshine Elementary School would like to implement school uniforms for the 2020-2021 school year.  Research shows:

  • 22% of elementary schools currently require uniforms and this trend continues to increase.
  • Testing scores increased up to 3% points on average after uniforms were implemented.
  • Wearing uniforms increases school pride and a sense of community.
  • Absences decreased up to 7% when schools had a uniform policy.
  • NAESP (National Association of Elementary School Principals) say that 58% of parents favor a uniform policy for safety reasons.
  • Wearing uniforms actually save money! Families have saved at least $50 per child per school year. Plus it's much easier to get dressed in the morning and arrive to school on time.
  • School uniforms create a level playing field and reduces peer pressure and bullying.

Be on the look out in your child's homework binder for the Parent/Guardian Survey that will be sent home this week and the link for the survey online.

Here are a few online resources to help you make an informed decision when it comes time to vote.
