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
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.
will continue to send additional information throughout the year.
