(This amendment provides funding to school divisions for additional support to assist students with concussions to return to the classroom successfully.  Eligible school divisions are those in low population/high poverty areas that are eligible for federal Rural and Low-Income School Program allocations.  The funding may be used for a licensed school nurse position employed by the school division, a licensed nurse contracted by the local school division, or a certified athletic trainer.  Funding shall be used to support the return to learn protocol as defined by the Board of Education's Guidelines for Policies on concussion in Student-Athletes.)
