School Board Policies

Expert Folks,

In the past couple of months I have received several requests from school
boards or their administrators for prototype language that provides
direction for WHEN and HOW a public body properly reacts to needs of the
under-presented gender/class. Law, both state and federal, "mandates" that
student interest be surveyed to determine unmet interest in athletics and
that this is what is assumed as baseline data when substantial
disproportionality is detected, noted, complained about, etc.

What I can't find is language that establishes triggers and defines
procedure when self-study (or a curmudgeon like me) points in the direction
of disproportionality/action. Any help out there?
