Body Mass Index Data

  • 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 Queensbury Union Free 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 must contact their child’s school nurse.
