  • The Board reviewed and approved Concussion Guidelines for 2016-17 school year following a report by Kathleen Robinson, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction. Robinson explained how the District formed a Concussion Oversight Team (COT) last fall to develop a school-specific emergency plan for interscholastic athletic activities — as required by a new law in Illinois. The team, which included Robinson, Athletic Director Amanda Monahan, Certified School Nurse Melissa Geibel and Psychologist Gwent Grant, began the process by reviewing research from Lurie Children’s Hospital and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In their research, they found 80 percent of children are ready to return to play one to four weeks after suffering a concussion. They used the information to help craft the District’s Concussion Guidelines, which will be shared and discussed with coaches, teachers and staff during upcoming training sessions. In addition, the guidelines will be shared with parents in the Parent/Student Handbook so that they know what to look for as well.
