Anderson Student Cannot Wear Scrubs to Non-Medical Classes

High school students in Anderson health professions training program must continue to change out of scrubs for other classes or risk discipline for violating the Anderson schools’ uniform policy. Anderson Community Schools Superintendent Mikella Lowe recommended Tuesday night that the school board take no action to amend the policy, which students in the certified nursing program and their teacher raised objection to in August. Students have said they don’t have time to change clothes nor do they have a convenient place to do so. Lowe likened the scrubs to gym clothes, aprons worn in home economics classes and overalls worn in machine trade classes.
