BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

The Beaverton School District is facing a class action, Title IX lawsuit that claims the district treats male athletes more favorably than it's female athletes.

The lawsuit claims female teams pay more in fees and charges for their sports, but get less practice time and unfavorable practice schedules compared to the male sports programs.

The lawsuit lists athletic fees at different high schools and claims at Aloha High School, girls pay $475 for soccer, that includes summer training, practice schedules, student contracts and unspecified contribution fees, while boys only pay $265 with no additional charge for summer training, schedule, contracts and no contribution fees.

FOX 12 reached out to the district for a response, they said they have not yet received the lawsuit.

Just two months ago, the Lake Oswego School District was hit with a Title IX lawsuit from the softball team at Lake Oswego High School.

That lawsuit claimed the boys baseball team gets a better turf field with a stadium, concession stand and hitting barn, while the softball team plays on a dirt field behind the Junior High with only a few metal bleachers.

The district said it would make changes to improve conditions.
