Daviess Co., KY High reviewing dance policy

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - School dances might be changing at Daviess County High School in Kentucky because the current policy isn't sitting too well with some students and parents.

The policy reads that all dances, except for prom, at Daviess County High School are for only students that go to the school.

District officials say their first priority is the safety of their kids.

With such a large school, they say dances would get pretty crowded with over a thousand kids attending.

So officials came up with the idea to limit the dances to students only.

Some students say they're not too happy with the policy. Some are even going as far as putting on their own dance at a different venue.

Daviess County High School Principal, Matt Mason, says he's open to suggestions.

"I always encourage students to come talk to me and parents at any time with any concern whether it be this policy or another policy that they disagree with."

The dance policy will be brought up at the next "School Based Decision Making Council" meeting on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. at Daviess County High School.
