You've asked...and we're answering! Everyone is buzzing about how to receive AHA's CPR Smart School designation in New York. It's easy...a district just needs to implement a written policy that calls for students to learn CPR (yup, that includes performing compressions) and about AEDs. The policy must ensure all students learn this lifesaving skill prior to graduation. School districts can decide the grade level and class that works best for them. It's that simple.
