Competitive Athletics Data Reporting
Schools that offer “competitive athletics” must annually post data about the gender makeup of their teams and their student participation. This requirement is found in Education Code Section 221.9, which defines “competitive athletics” to mean sports where the activity has coaches, a governing organization and practices, competes during a defined season, and has competition as its primary goal.
By June 30 of each school year, starting in 2016, each school must make the following information available on its website:
- The total enrollment of the school, classified by gender,
- The number of pupils enrolled at the school who participate in competitive athletics, classified by gender, and,
- The number of boys and girls teams, classified by sport and competition level.
