YOUNGSTOWN CITY SCHOOLS ATHLETICS:

PUPIL ACTIVITY VALIDATION COURSE

The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) requires all individuals who supervise, direct or coach a student activity program to have a Pupil Activity Validation (PAV) certificate. The Ohio High School Athletic Association requires this certificate for all of its coaches in Ohio. YCSD offers a two-hour Pupil Activity Permit for any student/recreation activity program that involves athletics, routine or regular physical activity or activities with health and safety considerations. This course meets one portion of the requirements of the Ohio Department of Education for coaches or those involved in athletics with health and safety considerations. This course is meant to focus on basic first aid and injury prevention. CPR is a separate course offered by Kristy Olinik through National Safety Course.
