Amends the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Provides that the Department of Public Health shall develop, publish, and disseminate a brochure to educate the general public on the effects of concussion in children and discuss how to look for concussion warning signs in children. The brochure shall be distributed free of charge by schools to any child or the parent or guardian of a child who may have sustained a concussion, regardless of whether or not the concussion occurred while the child was participating in an interscholastic athletic activity. Amends the School Code. Provides that, amongst other duties, the regional office of education (rather than the district superintendent or chief school administrator) of a public elementary or secondary school or charter school shall supervise an athletic trainer or other person responsible for compliance with the return-to-play or return-to-learn concussion protocol established under the Code. Provides that the State Board of Education shall (rather than may) adopt rules governing concussion protocol under the Code, including, but not limited to, rules governing the informal or formal accommodation of a student who may have sustained a concussion during an interscholastic athletic activity.
