Sex Equity Monitoring Guide. Revised.
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia.
Guidelines are presented to ensure sex equity in the Washington state public schools. A legislative mandate requires the Superintendent of Schools to apply provisions of the sex equity statutes to any activity conducted by or on behalf of a school district. Every year, one third of the state's 296 school districts are required to complete an assurance form and submit associated proofs of compliance with sex equity law. Twenty to thirty school districts are then monitored on site as confirmation. This three-part monitoring guide is designed to help districts and state regulators assess the level of compliance with the sex equity in education statutes. The first portion of the guide is an Internal Assessment Packet to be used internally by districts for self-assessment. It contains sample policies, checklists, staff questionnaires, and other assessment tools. The second part of the guide is the "Monitoring Review Packet" used by districts for compliance in paperwork and the generation of forms required for state regulators. An appendix contains copies of relevant revised codes, state administrative codes, and other reference documentation to help districts understand sex equity in education guidelines. An introduction to the Internal Assessment Packet discusses Federal and state equity law and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. (SLD)
