With the enactment of Assembly Bill 2295 (Chapter 1060, Statutes of 2002), the California Department of Education and the California Postsecondary Education Commission were directed to conduct a study of Title IX compliance in athletics in California?s public high schools, community colleges, and universities. This study found that California public educational institutions, overall, are not fully in compliance with Title IX, especiallywith regard to athletics participation and coaching parity. Based on the findings, this report makes recommendations that generally fall into the following four categories: (1) better data collection; (2) increased technical assistance to districts and schools; (3) improved training for school administrators, athletic directors, and coaches; and (4) additional research regarding specific areas of compliance, particularly coaching.
