Dear Instructional Leaders:

The 2011 legislative session passed House Bill 204 Protection of Athletes with Head Injuries. USOE Rule R277-614 (attached) was developed to implement the law. The law directs each Local Educational Agency to develop and post a head injury policy intended to support/protect athletes and participants in physical activities.  The USOE and Utah Risk Management have developed the attached Model Policy to guide the development of local policy and a PowerPoint presentation for use in professional development.  Please be sure to review the rule and law as you move through the steps of creating your agency's policy.

Two websites are also available for your use. The Centers for Disease Control  http://www.cdc.gov/concussions/  and the National Federation of State High Schools  www.nfhs.org<http://www.nfhs.org/>  that offer helpful resources that include handouts, pamphlets, forms and online training programs.  Please contact me if you have questions.
