Chapter 622: A Guide for Administrators.
Massachusetts State Dept. of Education, Boston.
Massachusetts's Chapter 622 and U.S. Title IX regulations both prohibit discrimination by educational institutions. This guide is designed to assist administrators, particularly in Massachusetts, in complying fully with the spirit and letter of these regulations. The guide is divided into thirteen chapters, seven of which use parallel format to cover application of the regulations and compliance techniques to seven specific program areas: admissions, curriculum, guidance, extracurricular activities, scholarships and awards, inservice education, and personnel practices. Other chapters deal with the role of the 622/IX coordinator, annual requirements, complaints and grievances, systemwide planning, organizational dynamics, and resource usage. Five basic practices are encouraged through all these chapters: thorough planning, the involvement of staff at all levels, careful strategy development, research on new educational directions that can be developed through implementation of the regulations, and full utilization of the 622/IX coordinator. Pertinent regulations are summarized at the beginning of each chapter, and all chapters are provided individual tables of contents to permit easy assess to specific information sought by the user. The suggestions provided for compliance activities and techniques are synthesized from practice in schools throughout Massachusetts. (Author/PGD)
