Title I, Part A of Elementary and Secondary Education Act ( ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students.
Highlands Elementary School has restarted their Renton Parent University (RPU) program to better connect with and engage their families. The school recently welcomed 20 Highlands families from seven different countries to begin their 10 week-course designed to:
- improve collaboration between home, school, and community;
- build understanding about the school system, unique to Highlands Elementary; and
- offer families opportunities to strengthen their English skills.
The program is led by Highlands Multilingual Team Teresa Vazquez, Vince Davis, and Mickey Dunn.
To align with surrounding school districts and to maintain past practice of having six-week gaps between winter, mid-winter, and spring breaks, Renton School District has revised our calendar for next school year to move Spring Break one week ahead.
Spring Break for the 2022-23 school year is April 10-14 (it was previously planned for the prior week). If you print school calendars for use at home or work, please remember to change that calendar with this revised version.
