Months after a hashtag on Twitter marked protests of Findlay High Schoolâ€™s dress code, students will start the academic yearÂ being able to wear tank tops to class.Â The Findlay school board approved a change to the high schoolâ€™s handbook Monday that allows for certain tanks to be worn during the school day.Â The new policy allows students to wear tank tops and cut-off shirts so long as oneâ€™s underwear, back, chest and sides are all covered. Tank tops must also have a shoulder width of two inches, according to the policy.
The decision to change the policy came after school administrators met with student council members during the summer.
â€śWe wanted students to know that we do listen,â€ť said Principal Vicki Swartz. â€śIT makes sense to let students wear tank tops during some of the hotter months.â€ť
Students protested in June by wearing tank tops to school and by tweeting the hashtag #SaveTheTanks on Twitter.
