Sioux Falls School District Plans Sports Survey

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The Sioux Falls School District will survey students this fall about their interest in various sports, though officials say the decision is not directly related to a complaint about equal opportunities for female athletes.

The National Women’s Law Center in 2012 filed complaints against 12 school districts nationwide including Sioux Falls. Officials said they believe the districts violated Title IX, the federal law prohibiting gender discrimination in federally funded education programs. The federal Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights is still investigating.

Sioux Falls Assistant Superintendent Sue Simons tells the Argus Leader that the complaint “raised the district’s awareness about the issue.”

Surveys will be given to male and female students in grades 7-12. Results will used to determine which sports, if any, would be worth sanctioning.
