The Concussion Management Awareness Act provides rules and regulations for the treatment and monitoring of students with mild traumatic brain injuries. The law requires each school coach, physical education teacher, nurse and athletic trainer to complete an approved course on concussion management every other year.
Return to Play Protocol
Athletes must be evaluated for concussions or other injuries. The athletic director will work with the school nurse, school physician and the athlete's medical provider to monitor all return to play protocols.
The district will follow all of the concussion management protocols as outlined by NYSED.
