Final Agreement Reached In Lake Oswego School District Title IX Case


Attorneys representing current and former members of the Lake Oswego High girls softball team announced Tuesday that they have finalized an agreement with the Lake Oswego School District to bring its high school sports programs and facilities into compliance with the requirements of Title IX.

The agreement, which was reached on Sept. 25 and filed with the U.S. District Court in Portland on Tuesday, adds opportunities for girls to play sports on par with boys’ offerings and equalizes athletic treatment and benefits experienced by female athletes in several ways, according to Kim Turner, a senior staff attorney with Legal Aid at Work who joined with Lake Oswego lawyer Andrew Glascock to represent the plaintiffs.
