The Status of Title IX in Region X; An Evaluation of Models and Barriers to Implementation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, for Region X of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare.
Miller and Associates, Inc., Olympia, WA.
This study examines the current status of Title IX implementation in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, and Idaho (Region X). The two major issues addressed are: (1) the status of the implementation of Title IX in Region X and perspectives, issues, and processes which have an effect on its implementation; and (2) implementation models and supportive organizational roles and resources which are necessary to encourage voluntary, positive compliance actions by affected educational agencies and institutions in Region X. An overview is provided of Title IX and efforts to eliminate sex discrimination in such areas as admissions, courses of study, sports, career counseling, scholarships and awards, and extracurricular activities. Problems arising from the confusion over the regulations, lack of clear policy interpretations, and the financial impact of Title IX implementation on school budgets are discussed. Major findings, conclusions, and recommendations concerning Title IX implementation in public schools and institutions of higher education are outlined. In addition, case studies of six successfully implemented Title IX programs are presented. Appendices include a detailed description of the methodology used in the study, sample questionnaires, and an analysis of Title IX regulations. (Author/EB)
