Management of Sports-Related Concussion

In accordance with the Student-Athlete Protection Act, Code of Virginia § 22.1-271.5, as amended, and the Virginia Board of Education’s Guidelines for Policies on Concussions in Student-Athletes, the Superintendent has developed “Protocol and Procedures for Management of Sports-Related Concussion”. The goals of the Protocol and Procedures are to ensure that student-athletes who sustain concussions are properly diagnosed, given adequate time to heal, and are comprehensively supported until they are symptom free.
