After decades of allowing cheerleaders to wear skimpy skirts and sleeveless tops to class on game days, some Central Florida schools are cracking down and requiring the uniforms to meet strict dress codes. In Lake County, cheerleaders with uniforms too skimpy for the code are being asked to wear long shorts or pants under their skirts and a T-shirt under the sleeveless tops,
according to a district memo.
"During the educational portion of the day, they have to meet the dress code just like every other student," said School Board Chairwoman Debbie Stivender,
who ordered the staff to bring the outfits into dress code compliance.
