ADAMS COUNTY, PA - It's standard operating procedure for prom-goers to share dozens of photos following their big night.

A Pennsylvania High School is kicking up all kinds of controversy, however, in asking for photos of student dresses 'before' the big dance.

Beginning this month Delone Catholic High School in Adams County began a new policy requiring female students to bring in a photo of their prom dress for pre-approval.

School administrators are defending the policy, saying it is necessary to uphold Catholic values and moral integrity.

Students have a different view of the photo requirement, saying it isn't fair for those who have already spend hundreds on dresses that either won't be approved, or will require expensive alterations to meet the dance dress code."They spend so much time picking out the dress of their dream a fantasy dress if you will," said dress shop owner Simone Hostetter, who is altering many of the dresses already purchased by female students.

That's precisely the point, says Delone Catholic principal Dr. Maureen Thiec, who says students have had plenty of notice and time to either buy or change a formal evening dress to meet the new standards. "That's a big expense to be turned away at the door and we are trying to eliminate that difficulty."

They have wonderful collection of prom dresses.

I grew up in a very conservative family. My dad always said that if you would like people to respect you, you should dress properly. I think there is nothing wrong with requiring students to bring in photos for approval. After all, the Principal is held responsible for whatever the prom outcome is. And I know the Principal is also thinking the same as my dad, to produce students who are worthy of respect. And when the time comes that my daughter is to attend prom, I would also like to check on her dress. Self-expression is important, but there should be limitations. Yes, you only live once and prom is a major event for a teenager, but at least when you look back, you have something to be proud of and you can always remind your future children on why respect is important.

Yes, it's okay if the school has requirements with regards on Prom dresses. It must be a classy and elegant look not a revealing one which is not suited for a teenage like you.
