District to review boy's long hair dispute

July 16, 2008 4:32:46 AM PDT
A controversy surrounding a little boy's hair in the Needville Independent School District is expected to be a topic at a school board meeting today. Five-year-old Adriel Arocha's parents say his hair is long because of his Native American heritage. Needville ISD's dress code policy requires boys to have short hair.

Religious exceptions are possible but so far school officials have said they don't see a reason to do that in this case.
