Athletics Participation Data (SB 1349)

Sex Equity in Education Act

In addition to the federal Title IX regulations, it is the policy of the State of California that all persons, regardless of their gender, should enjoy freedom from discrimination of any kind in the educational institution of the state. The laws found in the CALIFORNIA EDUCATION CODE 221.5-231.5 External link opens in new window or tab. are collectively known as the Sex Equity in Education Act.

Per this California Education Code, the District is required to annually report and post its gender equity reports and maintain data for three school years. The rules about this athletic participation data collection are slightly different than federal Title IX regulations.  For Title IX participation, all athletes rostered on the first day of competition AND those that join the roster later are deemed participants.  For state reporting, we follow the details of the law and report only athletes on the roster on the first day of competition, and the number of teams at each competition level.
