DUNCANVILLE, Texas (AP) - A Dallas-area school district where more than 150 students were suspended in May for dress code violations has eased the attire rules.

Trustees of the Duncanville Independent School District on Monday night decided students wearing pants will no longer be required to also have belts.

KXAS-TV (https://bit.ly/1nLsVQU ) reports students will be allowed to wear shirts without a collar and untucked. The shirts must still cover their stomachs.

The previous dress code, which led to the suspension of dozens of Duncanville High School students, required belts with pants and tucked-in shirts with collars. The suspensions happened May 14 when code violators were taken to the school cafeteria and then sent home.

Critics complained that the dress code wasn’t enforced during the school term.



Classes begin Aug. 25 in Duncanville.
