Calvert Library, Commissioner for Women and Calvert County Public Schools Host Title IX Event (press release)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 30, 2014

Contact:  Robyn Truslow

 

 

Title IX & Calvert County Public Schools – Progress, Challenges, & Plans

 

The Calvert County Commission for Women, in partnership with Calvert Library and Calvert County Public Schools, are offering a special event for the community – Title IX and Calvert County Public Schools: Progress, Challenges, and Plans.  The event will be held Wednesday, October 15, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Calvert Library Prince Frederick, 850 Costley Way, Prince Frederick, MD 20678. 

 

Many people think of Title IX as “that sports law,” since it propelled school and colleges to provide equal athletic opportunities for girls and boys.  However, as the federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in educational institutions, Title IX covers much more than athletics. Title IX is as important today as it was when it became the law of the land more than forty years ago.

 

This forum will begin at 6:30 p.m., with a half-hour for informal conversation and networking.  At 7:00 p.m., Margaret Dunkle, Chair of Calvert County Commission for Women and Title IX guru will kick off the discussion by setting the stage, providing background about how far we have come and introducing emerging Title IX issues.  Then, experts from the Calvert County school system will outline progress made, current challenges, and plans for the future in related areas such as sports and athletic opportunities/treatment, bullying and sexual harassment, teen pregnancy and parenting, STEM opportunities and more.

 

Next, special guest Renee Yarbough-Williams – State Title IX Coordinator with the Maryland State Department of Education – will offer Reflections on Title IX Progress, Challenges, and Plans.  

 

The event will close with questions, concerns, and suggestions for next steps from audience members.  The Commission for Women will be holding a similar forum addressing Title IX and higher education issues next April, in partnership with the College of Southern Maryland.  For more information, call Robyn Truslow at 410-535-0291.
