NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
The collaboration, planning and expansion of community services for children and families in the Renton Innovation Zone Partnership to date would not have been possible without the generous financial support from The Ballmer Group, Boeing and the Renton Regional Community Foundation.
The Renton Innovation Zone Partnership, or RIZP, started as an idea at a meeting of the Renton School District and other community partners in 2017. Over the months, that idea bloomed and developed into a solid plan, which was presented in the summer of 2018, alongside three action teams tasked with addressing community needs. These teams focus on early learning, basic needs, and community and family engagement.
Needs in Renton Innovation Zone (RIZ) schools are increasing, as displacement causes greater concern for student’s families. At Lakeridge, Campbell Hill, Bryn Mawr and Highlands elementary schools, there’s at least 105 homeless students, as defined by the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act, 8 percent of the schools’ population.
