Provides that student-athlete who sustains concussion must return to regular school activities prior to return to competition; requires school districts to implement five-step return-to-competition process
S 225 (Diegnan) NJEA supports this important bill that codifies CDC best practices to help our students recover from concussions. The five-step “Return-to-Play-Progression” recommendations are research-based and designed to protect the health and safety of our students. What’s more, this bill provides clear guidelines for all schools to address the issue and ensures consistency for students to return to activities safely. NJEA thanks the sponsor for this important bill to protect student health.
NJEA urges you to vote yes on S 225.
