Can't mentor "in the flesh" but am more than willing to help with
education of community and letters to local media for fundraising, and
have emailed them accordingly. Also, isn't there a rule in
administering Title IX that if boys' athletic teams have booster clubs
that produce monies making funding of girls' teams inequitable, the
school/district must provide monies to even up the tally? Can a lawyer
provide chapter and verse, and possibly a letter of inquiry to the
district? Booster clubs are subject to Ttile IX because the teams
functon through the school.
