The Chula Vista Elementary School District has determined that schools that wish to consider uniforms need to have an “overwhelming majority” of the community in favor of uniforms in order to proceed. After surveying our community, 54% of our families are in favor of uniforms and 46% are against. Based on this survey, we clearly do not have an “overwhelming majority” of families interested in school uniforms and we will not pursue this policy at this time.
To give you a comparison, in 1997-98 both Rice and Loma Verde approved school uniforms and their communities voted in favor at a rate of 93% and 87% respectively. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call the school at 591-5500.
