COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – Students of Lowndes County will be required to wear uniforms next year following a decision by the school board on Friday. Board member Wesley Barrett began the motion that was only denied by Brian Clark. Clark said Caledonia parents objected to mandatory uniforms and only twenty percent of parents across the district wanted the change. Superintendent Lynn Wright hopes the uniforms will increase campus safety and create a more enforceable dress code.
