Hoodies, skirts and dresses will no longer be acceptable attire for the majority of students at a North Texas school district when the new academic year begins in August.

The Forney Independent School District, which is a part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, announced that any kind of clothing with a hood — whether it be a sweatshirt, jacket or coat — won’t be allowed inside school buildings. The school district did specify that pre-K through fourth-grade students will still be allowed to wear dresses, skirts and skorts until they age out of that privilege.

The move is done to bring a more professional atmosphere to the classroom and set children up to be good professionals as they mature, according to school officials.

This theme was hit on throughout Forney ISD’s announcement video. A young student in the video explains how multiple jobs require a dress code — such as wearing scrubs, a welding helmet or an apron — and then says, “The way I dress plays an important role in professionalism and safety, both in the classroom and on the job site.”

Forney ISD’s Superintendent Justin Terry then talked about how it’s important to establish “some of the foundational, baseline employability skills.” That included showing up to work on time, communicating with colleagues and fulfilling the expectations your employer has for you.
