**If a student is still receiving academic adjustments of any kind DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF SYMPTOMS, he/she cannot be considered symptom-free.  Per the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines, “students should be performing at their academic ‘baseline’ before returning to sports, full physical activity, or other extracurricular activities following a concussion.”  Therefore, successful return-to-learn is necessary before approval to return to play.
