Catasauqua resident Cindy Weiss believes the districtwide dress code and cellphone policies need to be readjusted.
Weiss, who has two sons and a daughter attending school in the school district, told the Catasauqua Area School Board her daughter, who attends Catasauqua High School, has been in violation of the dress code policy twice for wearing the same pair of jeans four times, but was only sent home once.
"She's missing out on stuff she's supposed to be learning that day," Weiss said at the board's Nov. 11 meeting.
