DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) — School board members in Danville won't be considering a full uniform when they vote on attire for students later this month. But they may ban one garment that's a mainstay for many kids.

Board members will vote April 23 on a policy that would ban blue jeans from school on all but special occasions designated by principals.

According to The News-Gazette in Champaign (http://bit.ly/1kwxJ0Y), most board members back a policy change requiring students to wear pants, skirts or skirts that are khaki or other solid colors.

Board member Darlene Halloran says jeans could be used as a reward for good attendance or other good behavior.

Board members Bill Dobbles opposes the no-denim rule. He worries it could be too expensive for many parents to follow.
