Cape Cod school runs criminal records checks on prom dates

Sorry folks, I don't make this stuff up ...

A school board on Cape Cod in Massachusetts has caused a minor kerfuffle by requiring students to fill out a form on their intended prom dates so that the school board can run a criminal records check on them. Tonya Dockray is a little peeved that her boyfriend's old pot bust means she'll be flying solo at the prom. Check it out: School Bans Some Dates From Senior Prom - Yahoo! News.

Update (20060513): Apparently the school authorities have backed off: - Local / Regional News: Prom-ising ending: School backs off ban on dates amid probe.
