BMI Data Reporting
The Ken-Ton School District has been selected by the New York State Department of Health to participate in the BMI (Body Mass Index) Data Reporting. The last time the district was selected to participate was in 2016.
This data collection is conducted by school nurses and is based on BMI data from the 2017-18 school year from theNew York State-mandated physicals for grades K, 2, 4, 7, and 10.
New York State requires that parents or persons in a parental relationship be given the right to exclude their child’s weight status information from the survey. This may be done via an opt-out form.
