Before the league gets off the ground, we would like to know how our league will be affected by Title IX. Since Title IX governs equitable financial aid, and scholarship amounts would be unchanged, we do not anticipate these additional salaries impacting Title IX matching. However, since we want to be sure, and since we are not opposed to using any league surplus to help schools with Title IX matching, we have requested a “Dear Colleague” directive letter from the Office of Civil Rights at the Department of Education. You can find our request below.
We at the HBL always want to hear from you to get your thoughts on this venture.
