Ottawa Now – After a dress code blitz caused a stir on social media, local school board begins the conversation to restore trust with students


A controversial dress code blitz created quite the social media stir last week, as hundreds of students at Beatrice-Desloges High School made their voices heard. Students, mostly female, were pulled out of class at the Orleans school last Thursday to confirm whether or not their attire followed the rules. The school board responsible says they would look at changing the enforcement of the school’s dress code and they would also examine the dress code itself. What has happened since those conversations? Kristy Cameron is joined by Jason Dupuis, the Superintendent of Education at Ottawa’s French Catholic School Board, and Daniel Boudria, a School Board Trustee for Cumberland Ward.
