Important Concussion Management Information

On July 1, 2012 in New York State, the Youth Concussion Law went into effect. This law requires any charter or public school student suspected of suffering a concussion to be immediately removed from play. 

Once suspected of a concussion, a student cannot return to their sport until they are cleared by a physician, successfully complete the NECSD "Return To Play" Protocol (a minimum seven day process), and then are ultimately cleared by the NECSD Chief Medical Officeror their designee.

To assist our school medical staff in the event of a potential concussion, our student-athletes have begun computerized neurocognitive assessment using ImPACT, a concussion management service that the NECSD has subscribed to.

Additional information about concussions and our new legal requirements can be found at the following links:
