Body Mass Index is part of required school health check

New York state requires schools to track each student's body mass index (BMI) and weight status category as part of school health examinations.

Every year, the New York State Department of Health surveys some schools for the number of students in each of six possible weight status categories. If Schoharie Central School District is surveyed by the state, the district will share summary group data only and will not share individual names or information.

Parents/guardians who wish to exclude their child's data from the summary group calculations should contact Elementary School Nurse Sherry Roy, R.N.at (518) 295-6660, or Jr./Sr. High School Nurse Suzan Weber, R.N. at (518) 295-6634.

To determine BMI, a student is weighed and his/her height is measured. The BMI helps the nurse or doctor know if the student’s weight is in a healthy range or is too high or too low.

 The state uses BMI information to develop programs promoting child health. Only summary information is sent. No names or information about individual students are included.
