Concussions in Youth Athletes - Maine


The Maine law is found under Title 20 of the Maine Revised Statutes (A.M.R.S.A) §254.17, which falls under the Maine educational laws. The law requires the Commissioner of Education in consultation with others develop a model policy with regard to the management of concussions and other head injuries in school activities and athletics. Section 1001.19 of Title 20 requires each school board and governing body of each private school with certain enrollment numbers adopt and implement a policy for management of concussions and other head injuries consistent with the model policy developed by the Commissioner.
