What is WELNET?
The Wake County Public School System’s Healthful Living Department is providing a new online program called Welnet®. This tool will help teachers and students partner to develop an individualized Physical Education program that focuses on promoting fitness and healthy behaviors.
Welnet® is a web-based system used to assess fitness and health. This system enables educators to measure components of physical fitness, check for understanding of fitness and health concepts, gather information on health-related behaviors, and retain student historical data in a safe and secure environment. The use of Welnet® will help encourage students to form habits leading to active and healthy lives.
The Welnet® program allows teachers to print individual and group reports and analyze report results. Your child will have the ability to access his/her own personal Welnet® Fitness Profile, fitness scores and fitness history from any internet-enabled device at school or off campus. As a parent/guardian, you will also be able to follow your child’s fitness scores and progress through printed system-generated reports, discussions with me, and direct internet access to your child’s data.
You and your child will find Welnet® simple to access and use. Our district is committed to maintaining the highest level of security and privacy controls on our Welnet® system and will treat these data with the same level of confidentiality as we do all other student data. A unique login and password will be provided to your child granting access to their personal fitness information.
I will continue to send additional information throughout the year. Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information.
