Hey Moms,I'm the education reporter for the Gainesville Sun and I'm working on a story about the Alachua County Public Schools dress code policy that was enacted this year. I'm looking for parents and kids to talk to about the policy -- if it's working, if students are more focused and general feelings about the policy.Feel free to send me an email at jackie.alexander@gvillesun.com or call me at 338-3166. Thanks and happy holidays.Jackie AlexanderEducation ReporterGainesville SunSee More
