School-wide Concussion Management
When a concussion happens to one of your students, it’s critical that the entire school community—staff, students, and their parents—knows how to respond in ways that ensure the student’s best chance of recovery.
The Concussion Management Team (CMT) Policy and Resource Handbook, found in the RESOURCE LIST, will provide all of the materials your team needs for effective concussion management.

How to Use This Program
1. Use the links above to make sure all coaches, school staff, parents, and students know how to recognize potential concussions and respond appropriately. Good concussion management won’t happen unless all stakeholders are fully trained.
2. Download the CMT Policy and Resource Handbook on the right. When a student gets a concussion, it takes a coordinated effort to ensure the best chance of full recovery. The handbook provides easy instructions on how to set up a Concussion Management Team (CMT), a sample Concussion Management Policy, and packets of essential materials for parents, athletics staff, and teachers.
