During registration this May and June, a parent survey was conducted to determine whether uniforms should be adopted at Jose Damian Elementary. Within this survey, parents were asked about:
- Implementing Uniforms
- Types of Uniforms (Polos in Navy Blue and Charcoal Grey, T-Shirts, Jeans or Khaki’s)
Out of the 256 parents who responded to the survey, 86 parents (34%) voted for NO uniform, 167 (65%) voted YES to uniforms and 3 (1%) did not respond to the uniform question.
When asked about their preference between jeans and khaki’s parents overwhelmingly responded in favor of jeans with 138 votes (54%), and only 50 (20%) in favor of khaki’s (26% did not answer that question). Many parents responded by asking for an option to wear khaki’s and jeans, which students will be allowed to do.
