Board Will Light Up Softball Fields

Earlier this week we mentioned that OCR had recently determined the Pitt County (North Carolina) Board of Education to be out of compliance with Title IX due to the absence of lights at its softball fields. The Daily Reflector reports that at a meeting Monday night, the Board approved a plan to install lights at the three high school softball fields, a total cost of $180,000, ensuring that girls and boys have equal opportunity to play evening games. Administrators also announced plans to develop a policy to ensure that booster club spending does not result in such disparities in the future.
