Advocates and Administrators: Perspectives on the Title IX Coordinator's Role.
Adkison, Judith A.
The role perceptions and activities of seven individuals responsible for coordination of the efforts of their respective districts to comply with the requirements of Title IX of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act are described in this research report. All seven districts involved in the study complied at least with the letter of the law. Six went beyond compliance on paper to compliance in fact, and four beyond formal compliance to positive action embodying the spirit of equality. Researchers found that conditions identified by previous studies as necessary to successful fulfillment of the role of Title IX coordinator were not in fact present in all cases where coordinators proved effective. In each instance it was the particular interrelationship of district and coordinator characteristics, rather than the specific characteristics themselves, that appeared vital to coordinator effectiveness.
