Body Mass Index (BMI) is required for each 7th grade student. Each 7th grade student is also required to submit a physical dated after 9/5/12. The BMI must be calculated by the physician as well as the weight %. Go to www.cdc.gov
for more information on calculating BMI.
This year New York State Department of Education will require us to submit data on all BMI's of all our 7th grade students. The parent may opt out of this if so desired. The child's name will not be used in the survey and only the BMI and % will be data entered.
