Halton District School Board of Canada

Our newest member to the Hall of Fame is the Halton District School Board of Canada. This organization is the gold standard of concussion education for students.

The Halton Board has implemented mandatory concussion education starting in 9th grade and they are currently expanding their program to begin at the 3rd grade level. Through E-modules students learn about the signs and symptoms of concussion and the importance of reporting. Preliminary data has shown that not only are the students better educated but the incidence of long term effects of concussions has dramatically decreased.
