Max and Jenna's Laws outline specific responsibilities for school administrators. Below you can find out more about your responsibilities and how to fulfill them.
Under Max’s Law you must:
Develop a list of coaches.
Identify resources the district will use to provide training for all athletic coaches.
Develop training timelines for coaches of all athletic teams.
Ensure coaches receive training every 12 months.
Develop a tracking system to document that all coaches meet the training requirements.
Ensure that no coach allows a member of a school athletic team to participate in any athletic event or training on the same calendar day the team member exhibits signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion following an observed or suspected blow to the head or body or has been diagnosed with a concussion.
Ensure that no coach allows a student (after being removed from play) to return to an athletic event or training sooner than the day after the student experienced a blow to the head or body AND the student no longer exhibits signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion AND the student receives a medical release from a healthcare professional.
In addition to the legal requirements above, current best practice recommendations include developing a school-wide concussion management plan to ensure that concussed students receive appropriate academic accommodations as they recover from their injuries.
