As was previously announced at the Athletic Director’s Conference, the KHSAA will be conducting a brief Title IX Webinar on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. EST. 

As a result of Covid 19, on-site visits in the Title IX Education Program have been shut down for the past two years. In addition, the daily consultation with our audit team members has been suspended as well as they were not coming into our offices.

Due to this as well as the significant amount of turnover in administration among our member schools, we would like to take this opportunity to refamiliarize our schools with some of the basic components of Title IX prior to the 2022-2023 school year. The focus of this meeting will be the elements of Title IX as it relates to the management of the interscholastic athletic program.

Covered in the webinar will be a review of Title IX Opportunities and Benefits, the Annual KHSAA reporting requirement, and various items related to continuing to monitor compliance within the local school and school district. This meeting will count for one of the twelve required continuous improvement hours required for veteran athletic administrators (18 hours for those in their first 3 years) under Bylaw 25.

The KHSAA Title IX Audit Compliance team as well as Title IX Compliance Officer Darren Bilberry, IT Director Rob Catron, and Commissioner Julian Tackett will be present to facilitate the meeting.
