Uniforms are Coming to Centennial

by Kelly Braghini

This article was written with Vanessa Jones.

Next year Centennial is becoming a test school for uniforms. Unit 4 has decided that students are violating the current dress code too much, and administrators need a way to enforce the dress code. Associate Principal Charles Neitzel said, “We will be having uniforms next year; they will have a positive impact on student progress and learning.”
