With the new school year comes a new state law that requires every high school in Indiana to teach students cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
FRANKFORT, Ind. - With the new school year comes a new state law that requires every high school in Indiana to teach students cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Undoubtedly, CPR is a life-saving skill but affording the equipment has created a small hurdle in many school budgets.
At Frankfort Senior High School in Clinton County, students aren't just taught CPR, they are given hands-on practice.
CPR instruction kits used in classrooms come with 10 manikins and are priced at about $600.
The American Heart Association donated six kits to Clinton County schools so that they can comply with the new law.
Districts that can't afford the kits are able to apply for a waiver.
Principal Steve Edwards said he's anxious for his students to learn CPR.
"When the law came through, I met with my superintendent and said 'How are we going to do this? We're not going to wait. We're going to do it this year,'" Edwards said.
Supt. of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz praised the AHA's donation.
Under the new law, students will also have to learn how to operate an Automated External Defibrillator.
