Officials from Cape Girardeau Schools met Monday to discuss fine-tuning the dress code.

Superintendent Dr. James Welker tells us the Board decided to allow shirt sleeves to be fingertip length, they clarified what is considered a coat and jacket, cargo and carpenter shorts or pants are now allowed.

The Board did not approve a proposal to ban jeans for grades seven through 12.
