Rock Hill, SC – A school in South Carolina has, apparently, has had its fill of seeing kids with saggy pants roaming the hallways.

According to WYFF4.com, beginning this week students at Nortwestern High School in Rock Hill, SC will be given belts to use to keep their pants up.

Administrators hope by loaning the students belts it will encourage kids to give more thought to how they dress and reduce the number of kids referred for discipline.

Previously, students whose pants sagged below their waist could be written up and sent to the principal's office.
