A group of parents committed to reforming Inglewood Unified School District has presented its plan: more accountability, fewer Guess jeans.
Among the 12 recommendations the group gave the school board is a plan to hold principals and administrators accountable for how they spend school money. The group also recommended requiring uniforms for the district's students.
Officials at the year-round district plan to implement the uniform proposal by July 1, said Assistant Supt. Lowell Winston. Parents of district students will bear the $50 to $60 cost of the uniforms.
The district adopted an optional uniform plan three years ago, prompting about 60% of its students to wear them. But, as students unfamiliar with the program entered the district, participation dropped, Winston said.
