In August 2013, Public Act 098-0305 took effect.  This act requires the IHSA to be given a CPR training video to post on its website so that staff at IHSA-member school can watch it.  The act also indicates school districts shall notify parents and encourage them to view the video, too.

Since the D118 School District is a member school of the IHSA, we are posting the link to the following video for you to view:
