    2017/2018 NEW! WCSD WELLNESS INCENTIVE PROGRAM

    Washington County School District is partnering with FitBit for the 2017-2018 school year for our new employee wellness incentive program.

    What are the objectives of the NEW wellness program?

    • Assist employees and their spouses to fully engage in happiness and productivity in your personal lives.
    • Provide an avenue for employees and spouses to feel more energetic, fit, and to be there for your families.
    • Reduce unnecessary medical insurance utilization and premiums.

    How can we achieve our objectives?

    • Strive for progress, not perfection!
    • By utilizing technology that engages us in a new, exciting way, to compete or challenge ourselves, we can look forward to a better us both personally and as a school district body!

    What do you want to get out of the NEW wellness program?

    • Set your own daily benchmark goal using the FitBit platform.  Your goal should be obtainable for you!  FitBit benchmark recommendation is to get 6,000 steps a day.  However, we recognize this goal may be a little too much for some people or not enough for others.  Please consult your physician before starting any exercise program.
    • Participate in all 3 quarterly competitions (October, January, and April). If you are hired after August 1, 2017, there may be some changes to the requirement of quarterly competitions.
