The Bethlehem School District

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

Allentown School District may have implemented school uniforms, but their friends in Bethlehem will not be joining them.

Bethlehem Area School District Superintendent Dr. Joseph Roy says the district will not be making the move to uniforms anytime soon.

He says taking time to study uniforms would divert the district from important academic initiatives.

Roy says he doesn't know of any research proving uniforms improve academics.
