Antioch is becoming the first city in the East Bay to require students at its high schools to wear uniforms.

The Antioch school board voted unanimously today in favor of a policy which makes uniforms mandatory at all its schools.

It goes into effect at the start of the next school year.

The uniform proposal came amid concerns about gang activity in the higher grades.
