OCR’s New Athletics Guidance: Assessing and Addressing Your School’s Athletic Opportunities Before OCR (or Your Community) Does
April 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
OCR recently issued new guidance to assist students, parents, and school communities evaluate whether a school is meeting its legal duty to provide equal athletic opportunities consistent with Title IX. Female participation in high school and collegiate athletics has vaulted in the 50 years since Title IX became effective, benefiting millions of women and girls. Still, disparities in participation and quality of opportunities remain. OCR is beating the drum to raise awareness of Title IX-related athletics requirements and encourage families to hold schools accountable for meeting those requirements. Your best defense is a good offense. Join us for a webinar on March 23 at 1:00 p.m. (CDT) as we break down the legal requirement for equal athletic opportunity and benefits, provide practical steps to assess your program, and clear common hurdles in meeting your compliance goals.
