An elementary school trend is hitting another Rockford school, uniforms. This fall the Luther Academy at Gloria Dei will be instituting a program for school uniforms.
The nearly 460 students who attend the academy will have a voice in choosing the new 'standardized dress.’
The program was instituted last spring to help focus the students on excellence in education. Programs like these are being considered for all Luther Academy schools around the Rockford area but not all parents are happy with the change. Principal Don Swanson says the school is looking forward to the change.
