Scarsdale Concussion Documents
Information for Families
The Scarsdale School District recognizes the importance of physical education for all students and supports a wide variety of teams and interscholastic athletic competition. We aim to provide a safe environment for students to participate in physical education and sports. However, concussions may occur as a result of participation in such activities. Consistent with recommendations provided by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association and as required by New York State legislation, the District has developed sport-related concussion guidelines and a return to play protocol after a head injury has occurred. These guidelines include the establishment of a Concussion Management Team, training for the Team and appropriate staff, protocol for student evaluation and return to play or activity, accommodations if necessary in academic areas, and a set of procedures that outline the role and responsibilities of all concerned.
