The Concussion Awareness Act requires all schools to have a protocol in place to assist students with brain injury in the classroom. The Nebraska Department of Education has brain injury resources for schools.
Share with Your Students' Educators
Half of Nebraska teachers responded in a 2018 survey that they did not know how to manage concussions in the classroom and the same amount noticed an academic decline from students after sustaining a concussion or head injury. But finding a way to offer differentiated instruction to a student can be a challenge, especially with full classrooms and limited free time in a teacher’s schedule.
The Brain Injury Alliance of Nebraska is proud to partner with Get Schooled on Concussions, Nebraska Department of Education, Nebraska State Education Association, Nebraska Council of School Administrators, Nebraska School Activities Association, Nebraska ESU Coordinating Council, and the Nebraska Association of School Boards to provide this resource for free, for all educators in the state.

What Is TACT?
TACT is a customized concussion management email tool based on each teacher’s unique responses to an online questionnaire (taking less than five minutes) about their teaching style and is immediately delivered to the teacher’s inbox outlining recommendations for environmental and academic content adjustments for the classroom. No personal student information is shared. The questionnaire only seeks information about the teacher’s personal teaching style for that class.
