First of all, instead of having an official uniform, our school would have some certain clothing restrictions. In order to prevent distraction from education, students must dress cleanly and "properly". To start, boys could not wear jeans, but would be allowed T-shirts, sweatshirts, ect. Girls would be required to wear a skirt or dress. What would you think of this rule?
This is a good idea. I approve.
I like the idea, but some changes could be made.
I don't care about it.
I would dislike it, but accept it.
I would greatly dislike this rule, and sometimes break it.
This would cause me to move to a different school.
Why do you like/dislike this rule?
In order to help keep concentration on education, our school would be clean at all times to create a comfortable atmosphere for the students. To keep this rule, students would not allowed to wear their streets shoes inside. Rather, they may keep a pair of slippers at school and change into them once they got there. What do you think of this rule?
This is a good rule. I approve.
This is a good rule, but not really necessary.
I don't care about it.
I would dislike it, but accept it.
I would greatly dislike this rule, and sometimes break it.
This would cause me to move to a different school.

I would keep slippers at school and always wear them.
I would have slippers in school, but ignore them if I was late and go to my first class in socks.
I would have slippers in school, but ignore them if I was late and spend the day in socks.
I would have slippers in school, but sometimes I would ignore them and just go in socks.

I would not have any slippers in school; I'd always wear socks.
I would not have any slippers in school; I'd always go barefoot.
I would not obey the rule and usually wear street shoes anyway.
Explain your choice.

I would not have slippers in school; I'd always go barefoot.
I would not obey the rule and usually wear street shoes anyway.
Explain your choice.
As a possible alternative to the slipper rule, our school may issue a certain type of sandals, which would be completely optional. These sandals would still remain school property if used by students, and a student may not have slippers and sandals at the same time. There would be a small fee at the beginning of he year to rent them. The sandals could not be worn outside of school. If the sandals are damaged or became too dirty to have inside, the student would have to pay extra for them, and would not be allowed any type of shoe inside the building. If this rule were made, would you get the sandals? Explain you answer t the bottom. (If any future questions involve footwear, then the sandals will not be included as an option.)
I would get them and use them frequently.
I would get them, but only use them as often as I would slippers.
I would use slippers instead.
I wouldn't use either footwear option.
(Explain your answer here)
On the first Friday of every month, our school would have a fire drill, and all staff and students would have to evacuate onto the football field. After some time, everyone would be allowed back in.To keep it real, there would be no forewarning that a Drill would happen during that day (Though it would be announced the day before.). Like in most schools, students would not be allowed to bring their bags or bring any outdoor clothing with them (Coats, ect.). This also means that students would not be able to change into their street shoes while we are having the drill. (Also, if slippers have gotten wet or dirty, they cannot be worn inside and you'll have to without. If socks are wet/dirty, then you'll have to go in slippers without socks or bare feet.) What do you think of this?
I like this idea; Fire Drills are important, and we need to keep them real as possible.
Fire Drills are important, but this is only necessary a few times per year.
Fire Drills are important, but there should be some forewarning on the day that it happens.
I'm neutral on the idea.
I don't like this, but I will accept it.
I would hate to have this.

Whatever footwear I happen to be wearing that day.

If a student were to forget their PE suits, then that would result in them doing PE in their underwear. What do you think of this?
That's fair. I would accept that.
I wouldn't care.
I would hate that.
I would choose a different school because of this.
Given the rule, would you be more careful not to forget your PE kit?
Absolutely. I would always have it.
Yes, but I might still forget occasionally.
Sure, but I'd still forget frequently.
I'd rarely forget my PE anyway.
No, I would still forget it on occasion.
No, I would still lose it quite often.
I would leave my kit on purpose so that I could participate in PE in my underwear.
If you were to forget your PE kit one day, how would you feel? Would there be any difference between doing outdoor or indoor PE?
Regarding the swimming unit in PE, there would be a locker room that would be used for the pool and pool alone. That way, no one would have to go through different rooms with their body showing (If they are self-conscious). Because the floor around the pool is mostly wet, all students who wish to cross to the locker room must have their feet bare; (To prevent getting the floors outside of the room wet) socks and slippers would be left at the entrance, and PE shoes would have to be carried. What do you think of this?
I like this idea.
I like the concept, though the rule would not be necessary.
I would be indifferent.
I would dislike the rule, but accept it.
I would hate the rule and try to break it.
I would switch schools because of this.
If you weren't reminded of this rule, how likely would it be that you'd forget?
I wouldn't forget. I would make sure to remove my footwear at the entrance every day.
I would try to remember, but still might slip up occasionally.
I would forget quite frequently.
I would frequently walk into the pool area with footwear on despite the rule.
This rule doesn't effect me much; I would usually go barefoot no matter where I was in school.
In order to keep our punishments fair, students would be issued a punishment packet, which they would answer and then turn back in to the teachers. Each student would select a punishment for breaking certain rules. Then, the majority vote would decide the punishments for that semester. Therefore, if a student werer to break a rule, they would face a consequence that they (Or their classmates) have chosen. What do you think of this?
I think that's a great idea.
I don't see why not.
I wouldn't care.
Punishments should be chosen by teachers, not students.
I think this should only be necessary for certain kinds of punishments.
