SAS Materials and Resources: CPR Toolkit Now Available
On June 12, 2019, the Public School Code of 1949 introduced Senate Bill 115 Act 7 pertaining to Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Education (CPR).
Section 1528 (a) In accordance with the academic standards for health, safety and physical education for grades nine through twelve and not later than the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, the department, in consultation with the Department of Health and at least one organization recognized under section 1205. 4, shall identify or develop a model curriculum and curriculum guidelines for instruction on cardiopulmonary resuscitation for public school students in grades nine through twelve.
Guidance in this toolkit includes the model curricula developed by the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross. The Red Cross Trainings for Schools and the American Heart Association’s CPR in Schools meet the requirements of Act 7.
