Return to Learn Protocol (RTLP) Procedure

Return to Learn Protocol (RTLP) Procedure

Rest is the best “medicine” for healing concussions or other head injuries.  The concussed brain is affected in many functional aspects as a result of the injury.  Memory, attention span, concentration and speed of processing significantly impacts learning.  Further, exposing the concussed student to the stimulating school environment may delay the resolution of symptoms needed for recovery.  Accordingly, consideration of the cognitive effects in returning to the classroom is also an important part of the treatment of concussions and head injuries.  Please contact the Academic Success Coordinator if your child has a diagnosed concussion.

  1. Concussion occurs.
  2. Academic  Success Coordinator is notified who will then make teachers aware of the situation.
  3. Medical confirmation of concussion is obtained either from the Pius X athletic trainer or a physician.
  4. Concussion Management Team (CMT) proceeds with a plan. Resources on concussions are offered to parents.
  5. Concussion Management Team documents cognitive, academic, behavioral and emotional symptoms of concussion and works through the SAT process with the Academic  Success Coordinator to coordinate academic accommodation during recovery following the Return to Academics Progression chart.
  6. The team continues to gather and track data and consulting with teachers to monitor student progress and symptoms during recovery. 
  7. Family tracks and regularly reports progress on physical, cognitive and emotional symptoms to the Academic Success Coordinator.
