Source: doe.in.gov | Re-Post Duerson Fund 7/5/2017 –

As part of a school policy, schools should develop procedures regarding return to learn protocols for students diagnosed with a concussion. These rules are effective for all Indiana Public Schools effective July 1, 2017.

The Concussion Law and the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Law both apply to student athletes who participate in interscholastic sports.  Following the requirements in these laws is recommended, but is not mandatory for intramural or club sports.  The Concussion Law applies to student athletes in grades 5-12 and the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Law applies to student-athletes under the age of 18.
