Concussion Management

  • To comply with Texas State Legislature House Bill 2038 (Chapter 38. Sub Chapter D of the Texas Education Code (TEC)) and related UIL mandates, Lake Dallas ISD has implemented this concussion management plan.

    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that there are approximately 300,000 cases of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) or concussions annually in the United States as the result of participation in sports. The Sports Concussion Institute estimates that 10 percent of athletes in contact sports suffer a concussion during a season. A 2006 report estimated that there were 92,000 cases of concussions in American high school sports annually, and that these rates seem to be increasing. Also of concern is the risk of repeated concussions and Second Impact Syndrome to our young athletes. These two problems can have long lasting, and even terminal effects, on the individual. In order to have a standard method of managing concussions to Lake Dallas ISD athletes, the following guidelines are intended to serve as a written protocol for concussion management.
