Cranston’s father-daughter dance could go on after all under legislation that has been endorsed by the Rhode Island Senate. The Senate passed the measure Thursday on a vote of 33-3. The bill now moves to the House. The bill would allow schools to provide activities specifically for students of one gender as long as reasonably similar activities are open to students of the opposite sex. Cranston school officials canceled the father-daughter dance last year after the state affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint on behalf of a single mother whose daughter could not attend.
