A few Oakland school sports saved by donors; gender inequity blindsided district

New donations will save three of 10 sports cut in Oakland high schools last week, but even with the help, the district might still be out of compliance with federal law requiring gender equity in sports. A $35,000, one-time gift from a donor who wished to remain anonymous will ensure that about 125 girls can still play golf and tennis this fall, said district spokesman John Sasaki at a Monday afternoon press conference. In addition, a separate donation will save girls’ lacrosse, which is played at only one school, Oakland Technical.
