Free Height and Weight Equipment
The South Dakota Departments of Health and Education will partner with schools to collect current height and weight data on school age children. Schools interested in applying for scales and measuring boards to assist with data collection should complete the application and return it to the Department of Health by September 24, 2012.
The school height and weight data collection program has been underway since 1998 as an effort to track childhood obesity in South Dakota. It serves as a basis to develop state and local strategies and is a way for participating schools to quantify the problem of childhood obesity. Participation in the program is voluntary.
