ATHLETIC PROGRAMS


BARABOO SCHOOL BOARD POLICY

 

377

 

The opportunity to participate in interscholastic athletics must exist for all students.   Separate programs for males and females are allowed, but the separate programs must be comparable in type, scope, and support from the school district.  Programs are considered comparable in scope when they satisfy the interest and abilities of the participants.  Comparable support does not mean equal dollar support; it means support that satisfies the needs of the program, based on student interest and ability.

 

The District shall not discriminate on the basis of sex, age, race, religion, color, national origin, homeless status, ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital or parental status, sexual orientation or physical, mental, emotional or learning disability or handicap. 

 

Athletic program participants are expected to adhere to rules and procedures as defined in the athletic code of conduct.

 

The District will provide separate locker rooms, showers, and toilets for males and females.  The separate facilities, however, will be comparable in terms of space, number of lockers, showers, and other locker room facilities. 

 

If any student believes that the District has failed to adhere to this policy, he/she may bring or send a complaint to the administration in accordance with established procedures.
