Public meeting to review Henrico schools code of conduct

Posted: Updated:

Henrico County School leaders will hold a public meeting Thursday to look at big changes that will impact the way students are disciplined.

The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the New Bridge Auditorium at 5915 Nine Mile Road. Among the topics expected to be discussed, the debate over whether or not yoga pants should be banned from the student dress code.

The revised code of conduct is just a proposal for the 2014-15 school year, but it details different and more specific ways to deal with students who break the rules. It gives administrators more flexibility when it comes to discipline, and would recommend different punishments based on age. Experts say this is a more progressive approach, but it could encounter some backlash.

The proposal is just a draft, and still has to be voted on by the board.
