How should I address this issue with my DD's teacher. Should I approach the teacher, the AP or just let it go because I am overreacting.
DD goes to a public school that has a mandatory uniform policy. Basically its specific colored polo or collared shirts with khaki or navy bottoms (shorts, pants, jumpers or skirts). There is no specification as to length, but the pants must sit at the waist and not drag on the floor (no saggy pants). On Fridays the kids that pay $1 (as a 5th grade fundraiser) can wear jeans or denim bottoms and a t-shirt. Last week DD wore some denim shorts and a t-shirt. The shorts were a normal mid to upper thigh length. They had extra long pockets that stuck out the bottoms with sequins covering the parts that stuck out. The pockets were made extra long to stick out and the shorts are the same length as uniform shorts she's been wearing all year. In any event, last Friday the teacher took her down the hall to another classroom and in front of the other class asked that teacher if she thought my DD's shorts were appropriate and made her turn around to show the shorts in front of that class. My DD was completely embarrassed, but she said the other teacher said she "looked cute" and DD and her teacher headed back to class. I think it could have and should have been handled in a different manner and if the teacher thought DD looked inappropriate for school, why not send her to the office and let them handle it if there was some kind of dress code violation or call me to have me bring her a different pair or something.
ETA - I'm easily approachable and always at the school volunteering and I'm on the PTA board so it's not like the teacher never sees me and we have chatted frequently throughout the year.
