2017-2018 School Uniform Policy
Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, all elementary and middle schools throughout the Consolidated School District of New Britain will have a universal uniform policy. Previously, schools had the option of which colors to wear. The new universal uniform will consist of navy or white tops with navy or khaki bottoms.

Superintendent Nancy Sarra said that moving to the new policy will help families and reduce the financial burden.

“Due to the transiency of the students in our district, we are adopting the universal uniform to alleviate the financial burden of having to buy new uniforms if your child moves to a different school in district. This also gives our students across the district a unified and consistent appearance.” 

The district’s intent had been included in the 2016-2017 Parent/Student Handbook in order to give families sufficient time to prepare for the change. Families who may be faced with financial difficulty in purchasing new uniforms should submit a written request for assistance to their school principal specifying the clothing needed, along with a statement of financial need.
