***The BOE presently has a dress and grooming policy for students.  The policy speaks to students maintaining a high standard for neatness and appropriateness of dress and appearance to maintain a proper and healthful educational atmosphere.  We have received a recent request from a few members of the educational community to implement a uniform policy.  In an effort to appropriately represent the wants of needs of the entire educational community we have a quick survey at each school for the communities of Prospect and Beacon Falls if you so choose to participate and voice your opinion.***
