As was previously announced at our Regional Meetings, the KHSAA will be conducting two Title IX Workshops for 2019-20. The first will be on Friday morning, September 13 at Caldwell County High School in Princeton at 8:30 a.m. Central Time. The second will be on Friday morning, September 20 at Rowan County High School in Morehead at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time.

This workshop should be extremely beneficial for all member schools, especially as schools prepare for re-visits during the coming years. Registration will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at the venue. EILA credit has been applied for in order to help the appropriate administrators who attend and in addition, this meeting will count three (3) hours toward the Bylaw 25 required hours for Athletic Directors. The meetings should conclude by 12:30 p.m. The focus of this meeting will be the elements of Title IX as it relates to the management of the interscholastic athletic program.

To register for the workshop, please visit https://schools.khsaa.org/ge67-title-ix-meeting-registration-form/. There is no charge for attendees.

Covered in the workshop 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.

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.
