Body Mass Index (BMI)

New York State requires schools to keep height and weight data and to calculate students’ Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI is a way of checking if students are under or overweight based on their height and weight. If the District is surveyed by the state, we will only share group data (such as, the number of third grade boys whose BMI is below the fifth percentile), not individual data.

Parents/guardians may request to exclude their child’s data from group calculations by contacting their school nurse by January 2. Click here for Health Office contact information.
