Some teachers aren't happy with a proposed dress code that would prohibit attire they might wear in their Burlington, Iowa classrooms.

The school board discussed the proposal earlier this week and is expected to do so again at its May 12th meeting. Board member Darven Kendell says the board has received complaints about how some staff members are dressing.

Denim jeans, novelty T-shirts or sweatshirts with logos, cartoons or pictures or sayings inappropriate for school would be barred. Shorts would be barred in air-conditioned buildings. Miniskirts, skorts (skirts with shorts underneath) and spaghetti-strap dresses wouldn't be allowed, nor open-toed shoes.

Teacher Jennifer Mehaffy told the board that she hadn't seen many problems with teacher attire and said the board should be focused on other issues.
