Height and Weight (BMI) Measurement at Charlottesville City Schools:
- With the back-to-school paperwork, families are given the choice to opt-out of height/weight/BMI measurement for their children. Once a year, physical education classes in grades 3-10 will take private measurements (excluding children whose families have opted out). Families will be notified prior to the measurement period. This measurement is not a health screening, so individual data is not reported to families except upon request. Instead, summary data is used regionally and nationally for health research, and locally, we use summary data to support grants that fund health initiatives.
