SCHOOL HEALTH RALLY: OUR CHILDREN, OUR FUTURE
Wednesday April 10, 2013
4:00-5:30pm Rally on Steps of City Hall
5:30pm Buffalo Board of Education Meeting
In April 2012, the Buffalo Board of Education approved a comprehensive District Wellness Policy. The policy is only as good as it is ACTED upon!
- Sexual health indicators for BPS students are the poorest in New York State; and over 200 students became pregnant last year.
- Buffalo has high rates of childhood obesity, i.e. 45 percent of Buffalo Public Schools 7th graders are overweight
- The District remains out of compliance with New York State Education Department regulations on physical activity- understaffed by 30 phys ed teachers, and the vast majority of children not receiving the opportunity for daily physical activity.
Join us in asking the Buffalo Public Schools to come into compliance with NYS Education Department requirements for physical and health education- We want the District to immediately implement a recess initiative and a sexual health education curriculum, and begin planning and budgeting for full implementation of the District Wellness Policy in the 2013-2014 school year.
