CONCUSSION AWARENESS AND EDUCATION:
To the extent possible, the Board encourages the Administration to implement concussion awareness and education into the
district’s physical education and/or health education curriculum. The administrative decision will take into account all relevant
considerations, including time, resources, access to materials, and other pertinent factors.
ACADEMIC ISSUES IN CONCUSSED STUDENTS:
In the event a student is concussed, regardless of whether the concussion was a result of a school-related or non-school-related
activity, school district staff should be mindful that the concussion may affect the student’s ability to learn. In the event a student
has a concussion, that student’s teachers will be notified and the Protocol and Procedures for Sports-Related Concussion will
be followed for any needs that that the student may have. These needs may include, but not be limited to: extended time for
assignments, rescheduling of summative and formative assessments, extended time for reading assignments, darkened area of
classroom. Teachers should report to the school nurse if the student appears to have any difficulty with academic tasks that the
teacher believes may be related to the concussion. The school nurse will notify the student’s parents and treating physician.
Administrators and district staff will work to establish a protocol and course of action to ensure the student is able to maintain
his/her academic responsibilities while recovering from the concussion. Section 504 accommodations may be developed in
accordance with applicable law and board policies.
