Are you ready to take the next step to ensure students in NY learn CPR before graduation? As you know the Governor signed the CPR in Schools bill...what does this mean? Now the Commissioner of the State Education Department and the Board of Regents must provide their stamp of approval. The Commissioner has 180 days to issue a report on CPR/AED instruction in the curriculum. From there, the Board of Regents has 60 days to accept or reject the recommendations.
So what will the Commissioner recommend? We don't know yet...and that's why we need you to stay with us for the next step. It's important that the Board of Regents start hearing from us now about why we need CPR for students and what should be included in school CPR programs. We'll reach out to the Regents every week with a reason to support CPR in Schools...remember our So Many Reasons campaign? We're now going to share the reasons with the Board of Regents - it's stories of real New Yorker impacted by sudden cardiac arrest and CPR. And we'll make it easy for you to send a message to the Board of Regents each week. It may be a simple email or a social media post. One minute each week - that's all. Will you commit to one minute each week to send a lifesaving message? Stay tuned...our first message will be coming soon!
