BOONE —Board of education members voted May 21 to strike a certain part of its dress code policy that was said to be targeting females.

One of board’s student representatives, Kelsey Marlett, presented information to the school board in December of a survey she conducted at the high school. The survey found that 84.5 percent of students felt that the dress code targeted one gender over the other, with the same number also finding the code to be targeted towards females.
