NYSED Guidelines for Concussion Management in Schools
Please note: Revised Guidelines for Concussion Management in Schools (July, 2022)
The NYS Education Department’s revised Guidelines for Concussion Management in Schools provide information on current best practices in concussion management and should be reviewed by district administrators, health professionals, PE and athletic personnel, and classroom teachers. Revisions include:
updated approved concussion courses that school nurses, athletic trainers, physical education teachers, and coaches are required to take every two years;
refined guidance on “Return to Academic Activities”; and
“Return to Physical Activities” now permits some level of sub-symptoms during each phase.
