It is the purpose of the Title IX committee to develop, strengthen, and raise awareness of gender equality through education, communication and athletics.
We accomplish this purpose by securing and promoting celebrations of women's achievements that foster the balance toward gender equality, distributing materials, monitoring issues within the school community, and encouraging student participation in all endeavors toward this goal.
Annually, the committee presents the Yves LeMay / Diana Watson Obey Award to a person in the district that exemplifies the traits characterized by both Yves LeMay and Diana Watson Obey. Yves LeMay and Diana Watson Obey were both teachers in this district that promoted the ideals of Title IX through their actions, teaching, and positive impact on their students. Unfortunately, both teachers’ lives were cut short while teaching in the district.
The committee welcomes nominations within our district; teacher, administrator, employee, community member, etc... that you feel promotes the ideas of Title IX. You can interoffice mail your nomination to Laura Marino @OBES & Lisa Markowicz Abel @POBMS. You can also email an attachment describing the nominee to firstname.lastname@example.org & LiMarkowicz@pobschools.org . The award ceremony is held at central administration on May 18th. The deadline for submitting this nomination is March 7th, 2017.
