Know! Puberty is a Brain-Changer

ThinkstockPhotos-638787162-1.jpgCracking voices, body odor and wild mood swings - all indicators of the long-awaited and sometimes dreaded period in every adolescents’ life. We’re talking puberty. Most youth are well-aware of the physical changes they can expect their bodies to go through, but do they know the impact of puberty on their brains?

Coaching permit holders have a new requirement

 A new state requirement from Ohio Senate Bill 252 (Lindsay’s Law), effective March 14, 2017, affects pupil activity (coaching) permit holders. All individuals who coach athletic activities must annually complete a sudden cardiac arrest course approved by the Ohio Department of Health. In early May, the Ohio Department of Health is expected to announce a new course for fulfilling this requirement. As soon as the training is available, we will notify districts of its availability and encourage them to have coaches complete it as soon as possible.
