2013 DACC Prom


The Delaware Area Career Center 2013 Prom will be held on April 27th, 2013 from 8PM to 11:00PM, at the Brookshire Event Center in Delaware, Ohio.  This year's prom theme is Masquerade Ball.  Masquerade masks are permitted within good taste.  Prom tickets are $25 per person and are now on sale.  Students may purchase their prom ticket(s) at DACC before school, during lunch, or after school from Mrs. Pemberton at North Campus or Peggy Harris at South Campus. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door.



The DACC Board of Education Student Code of Conduct will be in effect at all times.  Students who choose to bring an outside guest are responsible for picking up and completing a guest form.  Guest forms are located with Mrs. Pemberton in the main office or on the DACC website.  Forms must be completed and returned to DACC by April 24th before 3pm.  DACC does not permit guests over the age of 21 or in middle school.  All guests must follow the DACC Code of Conduct.  No guest will be admitted the night of the dance without a guest form on file.  All guests must present photo identification upon arrival.  DACC students who bring an outside guest are responsible for properly informing their dates of the DACC Student Code of Conduct.  For the safety of our students any students who arrive after 9:30PM will be refused entry.  Once students leave the DACC Prom they will not be able to re-enter.


Semi-Formal Dress

Gowns may be strapless, have an open back or may feature spaghetti straps. However, bare stomachs or bare midriffs are not permitted.  Undergarments should not be visible.  See through apparel and gowns or dresses with slits that are above the mid thigh area are not permitted.  Garments that are extremely tight or extremely low cut are also unacceptable. 


Male attire needs to be semi-formal.  No (blue) jeans, t-shirts or graphic t-shirts.


Dance Style

The DACC Prom should be considered an elegant, first-class event.  Offensive, inappropriate, or suggestive dancing will not be tolerated.  "Grinding" and most types of "front to back" dancing is included.  It is at the sole discretion of the chaperones as to which types of dancing are allowable.  Students who fail to comply are at risk of having their parents contacted and being sent home with no refund of their ticket.

Golf Outing


The annual DACC golf outing is a fund raising event that benefits student scholarships and future levy campaigns. With the money we have raised in the past, we have helped send students to college who would otherwise have not been able to afford the expenses.

If you like to golf or you have a desire to support DACC's efforts, getting involved with our golf outing is a great way to help out and it's tons of fun!
