NYS BMI Survey

New York State requires schools to track each student’s Body Mass Index (BMI) and weight status category, as reported on the physical examination form. Every year, the NYS Department of Health will survey 50% of schools for the number of pupils in each of six possible weight status categories. This year, Oneida City School District has been selected to participate in this survey. The information sent to the New York State Department of Health will help health officials develop programs that make it easier for children to be healthier. If Oneida is surveyed by the state, the district will share summary group data only, not individual names or information. Parents who wish to exclude their child’s data from such group calculations may contact the nurse in their child’s school by January 12th. The information sent to the Department of Health will help health officials develop programs that make it easier for children to be healthier.

Last week, Governor Kathy Hochul announced a statewide goal of providing students the opportunity to be tested for COVID-19 as school resumes after holiday break. There is no requirement that families test their children, but the Governor is encouraging the testing of students in order to keep students and school communities as safe as possible. The Governor stated that they will be sending test kits for distribution to our schools and local BOCES.
