Public and private elementary and secondary schools shall make a biennial determination of student demonstrated interest. Schools shall report the method used to make the determination to the Department of Education as part of part 3535.3600. The first biennial determination shall be made prior to the end of the 1981-1982 school year.

Public and private elementary and secondary schools shall provide equal opportunity for members of each sex to participate in both their intramural and interscholastic athletic program by responding to the following considerations.
The number of opportunities for females to participate on teams is to be comparable to the number of opportunities for males to participate on teams in each school year in the interscholastic athletic program and comparable, as well as in the intramural athletic program. The equipment, supplies, and uniforms for each sport are to be comparable for both sexes. The locker rooms, practice, and competitive facilities are to be comparable for both sexes. The medical services are to be comparable for both sexes. The participation rates for members of both sexes are to be comparable while recognizing the voluntary nature of student involvement in interscholastic and intramural athletics.
