The video explains how artificial fields are to be tested to assess concussion risks. Remember that artificial fields are a plastic sheet put down on top of layers of crushed rock. (See the picture below taken as the Blair High School artificial field was being installed.)

At the bottom of this post you can find the answer to that question.
MCPS has no idea.
MCPS does not get copies of the Maintenance Logs or Gmax testing reports for their FieldTurf artificial fields.
MCPS pays over $1,500 per field annually to have the artificial fields Gmax tested, but never receives the test results.
Good luck students. We hope the artificial fields are safe, but we have no idea if they are.

copies of filled out Maintenance Reports for their artificial fields. Why get a copy of something that you have paid for?
