“It’s clear that of course, schools can’t do it alone. They are doing the very best they can and they’re amazing but we’ve gotta better support these kids.

The parents, the families, the extended families, the community-based organizations, King County, City of Renton, the more we can be coming together and strategizing together and finding real and tangible ways to remove barriers for kids and for families, the better. That is the goal.” -Staff, Renton School District
