Body Mass Index is part of required school health check

New York State Education Law requires body mass index, or BMI, and weight status group to be included in a student’s school health examination.

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.

Each year,  the New York State Department of Health will survey some schools for the number of pupils in each of six possible weight status categories.

a sample of school districts will be selected to take part in a survey by the New York State Department of Health. If Schoharie Central School District is selected to be part of the survey, the district will report information about students' weight status groups to the Health Department. Such information will then used by state officials to develop programs to help children be healthier.

Only summary information is sent. No names or information about individual students are included. However, parents and guardians may choose to have their child’s information excluded from the survey report.

Parents/guardians who do not want their child’s weight status group information included as part of the Health Department’s survey this year should contact Elementary School Nurse Sherry Roy, 295-6660, or Jr./Sr. High School Nurse Suzan Weber, R.N. at 295-6634.
