TCC Concussion Policy

TCC complies with the Ohio State Law as well as NFHS rules and OHSAA policies that require a student who exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors associated with a concussion to be removed from participation and not permitted to reenter practice or competition on the same day of the removal.  A physician’s written medical authorization, using the designated documents, is required to grant clearance for the student to return to participation.  Participation in Physical Education classes is guided by these same parameters.

TCC is guided by the recommended protocols and resources available feom the USA Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Ohio Department of Health, the National Federation of State High School Associations and the Ohio High School Athletic Association.  Links to these resources are readily available on the school website (www.tccsaints.com)
