Policy on "dates" for formal dances

That said, I almost fell out of my chair tonight when DD (age 14, freshman) was invited to another HS's homecoming dance and when she asked her Dad, he reacted as though he is considering letting her go. In fact, from his reaction, I will be surprised if he does not let her go.
Do most of you consider this a "date"? There's also a formal dance coming up in December at DD's all-girl HS where they will have to invite a boy. Maybe I'm nuts, but to me these are just formal party events and don't seem in the same category as letting your daughter go out to dinner and a movie 1:1 w/a boy, which she would not be allowed to do.
Also, the boy that asked her is someone she's known for two years from her summer camp and she is only interested in him as a friend. He's also a freshman.
If we do let her go, what is the usual protocol? Do I call his mom and discuss logistics? Would his parents drive them to the dance? Our family and his will be at the same Cross Country meet this Saturday, so I thought we could meet briefly there.
