Public Schools Selected To Complete The Survey for the 2019-20 School Year

The Student Weight Status Category Reporting System (SWSCR) collects weight status category data (underweight, healthy weight, overweight or obese, based on BMI-for-age percentile) on children and adolescents attending public school in New York State, outside New York City. 50% of all public schools are surveyed each year.

BOCES, Charter, Private and 4201 designated schools are not required to report WSC data.

NYC schools are also exempt from state education law that requires this data to be reported to the NYS Health Department. The NYC Department of Education monitors students weight status using NYC FITNESSGRAM.
