The Oklahoma City School Board is expected to collect public comment about whether to require uniforms throughout the district at its next three meetings: Dec. 10, Jan. 7 and Jan. 22. All the meetings begin at 5:30 p.m. at the district administration building, 900 N Klein.

For those who are unable to attend board meetings, comments on the proposed policy can be left with the principal of any district school, spokeswoman Kathleen Kennedy said.

Soon, the public will also be able to leave comments on the district website, okcps.org, she said.

After all the feedback is collected and analyzed, the board will likely vote on the uniform issue in February, Kennedy said.
