Uniform Policy

In April 2004, the school administration, led by principal Micheline Boucher, decided to adopt a strict dress-code by imposing that all students wear uniforms, consisting of polos, shirts, sweaters and pants depending on the season.

After a delay of the delivery due to problems involving the distributor, Mini Polo, uniforms were distributed to all students by the end of 2004. New demands and new collections of uniforms were also responsible for the delay. There were also problems during the distribution of the uniforms when several of the articles were missing or not delivered properly. The problem was fully resolved by the end of 2004.

In addition to the difficulties surrounding the delivery, the dress-code was met with some opposition, mainly by the student population, some of which defied the new code. Prior to the official decision by the administration, a student petition was circulated to show their opposition to the new rule. However, a telephone survey conducted by the school's administration showed that 72% of parents were in favor of the use of the uniform at the l'Érablière High School

Prior to this policy, there were also protests made by students in 1993 and 1999 contesting the dress code policy of the school. In 1993, over 150 students were suspended due to their participation in a marching protest. Their true intentions were to publish the fact that all pieces of clothing were going to be made in other countries, therefore forcing over a thousand students to participate in a transaction with other countries, which was not to the advantage of the province of Quebec at the time. All clothing ended up being made in Mexico, Thailand and other foreign countries.
