2016-2017 Regular Session
Under current law, the Department of Education was required to develop and implement, by the 2011-2012 school year, a head injury safety training program on the recognition of the symptoms of head injuries and the appropriate amount of time to delay the return to competition of a student who suffers a head injury. The program must be completed by school physicians, coaches, and athletic trainers involved in public or nonpublic school interscholastic sports programs and cheerleading programs. The law also required school districts to develop a written policy concerning the prevention and treatment of sports-related concussions and other head injuries among student-athletes and cheerleaders. Finally, the law provides that students who participate in interscholastic sports programs or cheerleading programs who sustain or are suspected of having sustained a concussion or other head injury while engaged in a sports competition or practice must be immediately removed from the competition or practice and may not return to competition or practice until evaluated and cleared by a physician. This bill amends the law to provide that students participating in intramural sports programs organized by the school will be included in the student-athlete head injury safety program, and that the coaches of intramural sports programs must also complete the safety training program.
