NYS Immunization Survey
At the beginning of each school year every public school district is required by law to complete the NYS Department of Health Immunization Survey. This survey is conducted to make sure students are in compliance with immunizations required by law for entrance to public school. The school nurse does their best to notify parents of discrepancies and inform parents of due/overdue immunizations. The survey reports all students that are compliant, non-compliant or exempt. A medical exemption requires a doctors documentation of reason for exemption and is renewed annually. A religious exemption requires documentation/letter to the Superintendent of schools for approval. All information is collected anonymously.
Weight Status/BMI Survey
The NYS Department of Health also conducts a survey of student's weight status categories/BMI. They survey school districts on a bi-annual basis. All information is collected anonymously.
