 Attention Parents:

 

Each year school districts are randomly selected by the state to provide estimates of childhood obesity rates at the county level.  The information is taken from the health appraisals of students in grades Pre-K, K, 2, 4, 7, & 10.  Each student’s health examination is required to include Body Mass Index (BMI) and determination of weight status.

If you do not wish for your child's data to be included in this survey (no personal indentifications), please contact the nurses office by:    ***Cortland Enlarged City School District has not been selected for the 2014-2015 school year.
