The State Board of Education on Dec. 12, 2017, in a unanimous vote, approved the addition of CPR training to the Model Curricular Standards for Health Education. The goal is very simple — to save lives and to empower Kansas high school students to be lifesavers by giving them the skills and confidence needed to help during a cardiac emergency.
