BMI Report Card

BMI Logo

The BMI Report Card was created and implemented following initiatives promoted in Arkansas and Massachusetts. The BMI Report Card assesses the weight status of school children as a mechanism to increase parental awareness, provide local resources and tips on how to maintain a health body weight.

The BMI Report Card requires the measurement of each student's height and weight for calculation of body mass index (BMI) and plots these results on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention growth charts according to age and gender.

The use of the BMI Report Card, in addition to increasing awareness of weight status among parents, generates a useful database for schools, districts, communities and counties. The database, allows communities to objectively evaluate the weight status of children for identifying necessities for interventions and for outcome measures.
