ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — A dress code for faculty and staff in Rock Springs-area schools is on hold following criticism from teachers.

Jeans, flip-flops and sweatsuits would be among the items banned.

The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner (http://bit.ly/uDTwtI ) reported Tuesday that the board of Sweetwater County School District No. 1 has gotten numerous comments from teachers critical of the proposal.

The president of the Sweetwater Education Association complained that it's vague and subject to interpretation by administrators. She said one teacher also questioned whether clothing choice affected the effectiveness of a teacher.

Board member Justin Spicer said he thinks students respond better to teachers who dress up. Member Brady Baldwin thought the proposal was too ambiguous.

The school board sent the proposed dress code back to the policy committee.
