Students, Cleveland Schools Chief Show Off New School Uniforms

CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland students showed off the city's new school uniforms at a press conference Tuesday.

Kindergarten through eighth grade students will wear solid blue or white tops with collars or turtlenecks.

They can wear solid skirts or pants in dark blue, navy, black, khaki or tan.

High school students can wear tops with a collar or turtleneck in any solid color, and skirts or pants can be any solid color.

Eugene Sanders leads the school system that has about 58-thousand students.

He says he believes students will find a way to be fashionable.

Cuyahoga County commissioners are spending one-point-five (m) million to help low-income families pay for the clothes.

The first day of school is August 23rd.
