Concussions in Youth Athletes - Kansas

Kansas

Kanas law is located at §72-135 of the Kansas Code. Chapter 72 deals with schools. (Kan. Stat. Ann. § 72-135) and can be cited as the School Sports Head Injury Prevention Act.

The Kansas law requires the Board of Education and the state high school activities association to compile information on concussions and provide it to school districts and parents. If a student is suspected of sustaining a concussion, the student must be immediately removed from play and cannot return until they have been evaluated by a health care professional and received written clearance to play. The law also requires parents/guardians to sign a release regarding concussions before a student participates in any athletic activity.
