Thanks Kristen (although the Feds haven't funded the states for this
kind of activity since 6/30/97) (I am one of those persons, for
Minnesota K-12, and am now state funded because the federal SEA
portion of the desegregation money - sex, race and national origin was
unfunded and only the regional desegregation assistance centers remain
funded.) That is part of my confustion about What Title IX money, let
alone $120,000.

I don't know what it means in this particular case, but the federal
government does give out money to states for the purpose of staffing
gender equity offices and providing information on gender equity
compliance. This funding has been emaciated in the last few years, but
that might be what the newspaper meant. The claims that schools will be
subject to large punitive damage awards is LUDICROUS. A very high
standard of malicious intent by the school itself would be required.
