Title IX: Interscholastic Athletics: Indianapolis Public Schools (IN) (05-10-5002)

On February 26, 2014, OCR resolved a Title IX compliance review of the Indianapolis Public Schools (District). OCR’s investigation revealed that the District’s interscholastic athletics program failed to provide girls an equal opportunity to participate in high school interscholastic athletics and failed to provide girls equal opportunity in interscholastic athletics with respect the provision of locker rooms and practice and competitive facilities, the provision of equipment and supplies, and the scheduling of games and practice times. OCR determined that the District was in violation of Title IX. Under the terms of the agreement with OCR, the District commits to ensuring that it will provide an equal opportunity for female students to participate in the athletics programs at its high schools. The resolution agreement also requires the District to improve the athletic facilities, equipment and supplies, and primetime scheduling of game and practice times provided for girls’ teams.
