Parents of children at three Newport Beach schools continue to cast their votes on school uniforms.

Newport Coast Elementary, which will open in the fall, is one of three Newport Beach elementary schools still considering the idea of a uniform dress standard for all students.

Although the votes are in and tallied for Newport Coast, PTA leaders will not release the results until families are informed.

Schools are referring to the proposal as a "dress standard policy" in an effort to get away from the negative connotations and visions of plaid jumpers that many people attach to the term "uniform," said Denise Knutsen, principal of Newport Elementary School.
