Auburn Elementary Schools Supervisor Mark Shedd said last night that children in Auburn schools will be able to wear the same type of clothing that they wore to school last spring.

The Auburn Superintending School Committee recently passed a resolution encouraging proper types of dress in school but leaving the details of what constitutes proper dress up to the individual school authorities.

Shedd pointed out that whatever dress was permissible last spring will be allowed this fall and that any changes to be made will be done gradually.
