Concussions in Youth Athletes - Oklahoma

Oklahoma

The Oklahoma law can be found at section 24-155 of the Oklahoma Code, under the school code of 1971. (Okla. Stat. tit. 24, § 155)

Oklahoma law requires school districts to develop guidelines and information on concussions and requires that parents/guardians annually complete and return a concussion information sheet before their child participates in an athletic activity. The law further requires that any student suspected of sustaining a concussion is to be removed from the activity at that time and may not return to the activity until they are evaluated by a licensed health care professional and is cleared in writing.
