2019-2020 FITBIT WELLNESS INCENTIVE PROGRAM-New This Year:

If you or your spouse purchased a Fitbit in 2017 to participate in the Fitbit employee wellness incentive program, the District will provide a one-time $50 credit to assist you in the cost of replacing your old Fitbit device.  This is voluntary.  You do not need to replace the device if it still works, but can if you want an upgrade or need a new one.  The minimum cost to the employee will be $8 out of your own pocket for the Fitbit Inspire.

Again, Washington County School District is partnering with FitBit for the 2019-2020 school year for our employee wellness incentive program.  Here are a few reminders:

What are the objectives of the wellness program?

  • Assist employees and their spouses to fully engage in happiness and productivity in their 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 are the requirements for the wellness program?

  • Remember to 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 maybe 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 challenges (October, January, and April).   You must complete the weekly minimum step requirement for each challenge, wear the Fitbit at least 3 days per week during challenges, and sync your Fitbit on the last day of each challenge for credit.  If your insurance begins after September 1, 2019, there may be some changes to the requirement of quarterly competitions.  Contact the wellness team for details at This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • New hires/newly eligible benefited employees and spouses: You will have from your insurance eligibility date up to 60 days to order your Fitbit, using your one-time, Fitbit credit for you and your insured spouse!  Choose from a variety of options-including several trackers available at no cost to you or your benefited spouse!  Click here to see device comparison.

Instructions for new hires/newly eligible employees and spouses:
Sign the data share agreement*, get your unique identifier code, and purchase your FitBit. 
Set up your FitBit, make a goal, and participate in the 3 quarterly FitBit Challenges.

Wellness program needs to be completed by June 30, 2020, for the benefit year that begins on August 1, 2020.

While WCSD encourages you and your spouse to continue to receive annual preventive care, biometric testing, wellbeing assessments, and continue a dialog with your personal physician, the 2018/2019 employee wellness incentive program will not require points or tracking of the preventive and other point activities.  Additionally, we encourage you to use resources through HR  for our EAP program with Lincoln Financial, and/or any other medical and mental health services provided by EMI Health for health-related issues.

All benefited employees and their spouses that wish to have the MONTHLY wellness premium discount of $100 for employee and $100 for a spouse in the 2020-2021 benefit year will need to complete the wellness initiative of a personal goal and participate in the 3 quarterly challenges by June 30, 2019.

*Your health plan is committed to helping you achieve your best health.  Rewards for participating in a wellness program are available to all employees.  If you, or your spouse, think you might be unable to meet a standard for a reward under this wellness program, you might qualify for an opportunity to earn the same reward by different means.  Contact  the wellness team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and we will work with you (and if you wish your doctor) to find a wellness program with the same reward that is right for you in light of your health status.
