    C.T. Reed School Uniform Initiative  

    "The Catherine T. Reed PTA sponsored the school uniform initiative. The initiative consisted of a school interest survey and an official voting process (January - May 2014)."  

    49% of C.T. Reed community responded. Of those responses 76.73% were in favor and 23.27% were against.
