Bridging the Gap from Concussion To Classroom: Return to Learn

On April 8, 2011, the Nebraska Legislature passed the Concussion Awareness Act. The Concussion Awareness Act became effective in Nebraska on July 1, 2012. The goal of the Act is to provide a consistent means to identify and manage concussions and help safeguard the safety of students and student athletes.

While the Nebraska law requires a specified Return to Play procedure, it is as important in the academic setting to have a Return to Activity procedure. In February 2014, the Nebraska Department of Education released the “Bridging the Gap from Concussion to the Classroom: Return to Learn” This plan was developed to provide guidance to assist school districts in Nebraska in developing a concussion management policy.

The attached documents outline the responsibilities and protocols that have been established by Millard Public Schools using the NDE’s Return to Learn plan as guidance.
