Revision of the 2016-2017 Athletic Form Requirements
This is an announcement for all parents/guardians of student athletes concerning the Preparticipation Athletic Examination Forms for the 2016-2017 school year.
The New Jersey Department of Education has decided that the examining healthcare providers DO NOT have to provide schools a copy of their certificates for completion of the Cardiac Assessment Module. However, examiners still MUST sign-off on the preparticipation form that the cardiac assessment has been completed.
Parents/guardians no longer have to have a copy of the certificate with the exam form. Please make sure that your physician has signed off on page 4 of the form that the cardiac assessment was completed. The form will NOT be accepted without all proper signatures by the healthcare provider.
If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse or the athletic coordinator.
Thank you for your cooperation.
The NJ State Commissioner of Education Office has mandated that coaches in all school districts take a certification course in "Concussion Awareness".
