Secondary Athletic Administrators' Perceptions of Title IX Policy Changes
Dahl, Gabriel Grawe
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, The University of North Dakota
The purpose of this study was to investigate North Dakota's Normal Competitive Region (NDNCR) high school athletic administrators' perceptions of 2010 Title IX policy changes respective to their athletic programs. Quantitative and qualitative data were collected to investigate the perceptions. Quantitatively, perception data were gathered from a survey (agreement and disagreement to statements on a six-point Likert scale, ranking, and choosing from a list of sports added) and analyzed in order to understand the perceived impact of the 2010 Title IX changes as well as the overall understanding of Title IX. Qualitatively, data from an open-ended survey question were interpreted and arranged according to the research question that it answered or provided insight. A stratified sample of high school athletic administrators was selected to be surveyed online (enrollment categories of 25 to 150, 151 to 350, and 351+ students) in order to reflect the populations of schools as a whole. Collectively, high school athletic administrators agreed there was a lack of Office for Civil Rights contact/education and sample policies, research, alternate procedures, and that checklists from the Office for Civil Rights would create a better understanding for Title IX compliance. There was a lack of high school representation when Title IX policy issues were discussed/implemented, and the high school athletic administrators would like to have a voice. In NDNCR, with larger school enrollment, more sports were added and available for female participants. Finally, high school athletic administrators believed there should be more local control and input with Title IX compliance.
