Lafayette Parish students still will be prevented from dying their hair unnatural colors next school year.

In addition, the 2017-18 dress code will officially prohibit students from wearing jeggings or yoga pants as uniform bottoms.

The current dress code already prohibits wind suits, gym shorts, leggings, jeans and sweat pants as uniform bottoms. The Lafayette Parish School Board voted Wednesday to clarify the language. Students must wear khaki or navy uniform bottoms.

A lengthier debate took place at Wednesday’s board meeting over whether to allow high school students to attend school with hair dyed unnatural shades, such as blue, pink or purple.

Officials had spoken with students, teachers and administrators over the past few weeks about possibly allowing dyed hair. The responses were mixed.

“Probably the big reason (for keeping the restriction) was the feeling that school is a student’s job, and there is a standard of appearance at a person’s job,” said Chief Administrative Officer Joe Craig. “The other big argument is that it causes a distraction when someone shows up in pink hair.

“The other side is that it’s probably more of a distraction to the older generation of teachers and administrators,” Craig continued. “It’s not really a big deal to the kids.”

Board member Britt Latiolais said high school students and administrators in his district were in favor of the hair color limitations.

“They believe it to be a distraction. I was asked to vote ‘no,’” Latiolais said.

Board member Elroy Broussard voted in favor of allowing any kind of hair color.

“I think every group of youngsters have their own era,” Broussard said. “I think it’s their era to explore whoever they are. Even though I don’t agree with it, I certainly can respect it.”

Board members Broussard, Justin Centanni, Tehmi Chassion and Dawn Morris voted in favor of removing the hair color limitations. Board members Tommy Angelle, Jeremy Hidalgo, Latiolais and Mary Morrison voted in favor of keeping the limitations. Board member Erick Knezek was absent.

The change failed because it was a tie vote.
