KSHSAA INFORMATION AND FORMS REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN ACCJSH ACTIVITIES
UPDATED PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EXAM
At their January meeting the KSHSAA Executive Board voted to approve an updated KSHSAA PPE form recommended by the KSHSAA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee. The primary content of this updated KSHSAA form was developed jointly in 2010 by six medical societies (American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Family Physicians, American College of Sports Medicine, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine and American Osteopathic Academy for Sports Medicine). This pre-participation examination form was created to better standardize the screening process and more accurately identify medical conditions that may affect safe participation in sports among students.
The updated KSHSAA PPE is now available on the KSHSAA website with a revision date of January 2015. Please begin using this new version with your students as they obtain physicals for the remainder of this school year and moving forward into 2015-2016. We also encourage you to inform your local healthcare providers who administer these exams for your students of this new version. You will notice the complete PPE remains a four page document with only minor updates to pages three and four. The most recent KSHSAA PPE form with a revision date of May 2014 may still be accepted by schools through the 2015-2016 school year.

The U.S. Department of Education has asked us to share a letter, including links to relevant one-pagers, with students, teachers, and families as they prepare for back to school.
The U.S. Department of Education is supporting the Administration’s efforts to inform the public about full implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Today, we are writing to enlist your help in our effort to find and enroll America’s estimated 50 million uninsured who will be eligible for coverage in the Health Insurance Marketplace starting in October of this year. We are dedicated to helping states, districts and schools promote good health by encouraging school communities to make use of exciting new provisions of the Act.
Too often, children who are uninsured encounter obstacles that prevent them from becoming fully engaged in the classroom, on the playing field and in other extracurricular activities, thus preventing them from getting the most out of their education. That is why our Department is working to ensure kids and families get coverage.
We are calling on leaders at every level to help enroll all eligible children and families. We urge you to join us and, via your membership networks and affiliates, to encourage schools to participate in this effort because schools are the centers of our communities. Every family, neighbor, educator, health care provider, and business knows the importance of well-educated and healthy children for a successful 21st century economy. The Affordable Care Act makes important investments to increase health care access in every school community.
The healthcare law:
Currently, everyone can access information about the Marketplace and HealthCare.gov and begin to share that information with teachers, students and families. It’s not too soon to check out the sites for tips and things that can be done now to prepare for enrollment in October. Individuals can sign-up for emails or text message updates, so they don’t miss a thing when it’s time to enroll.
When key parts of the health care law take effect, individuals will be able to go to HealthCare.gov to buy insurance from qualified private health plans and check if they are eligible for financial assistance all in one place.
We are asking you to share this message, and the links to relevant one-pagers below, with students, teachers, and families as they prepare for back to school, in the hope that we start this year with healthier children, families, and school communities.
