SeMo Student Receives Okay to Wear Kilt to High School Dance

JANUARY 6, 2006 - Posted at 3:48 p.m. CST

 

JACKSON, MO - A southeast Missouri student who was told to change out of his kilt at a high school dance can wear the garment  to future school functions.

But Jackson school district lawyer Steve Wright says senior Nathan Warmack could be asked to change if the kilt-wearing somehow resulted in a problem or disruption.

That remains a sticking point for Nathan and his parents, since his wearing of the kilt was seen by a school official as disruptive in the first place.

The Warmacks have said they think a broader policy change is necessary to allow other students to wear formal cultural dress to school functions.  They were also seeking a formal apology from the principal who allegedly said students couldn't come into the dance looking like clowns.
