Local Improvement Networks report 2020

In 2016, Renton School District committed to a bold, new approach to improving outcomes for students in a historically underserved area of the district. It began as West Hill NOW! and quickly expanded to become the Renton Innovation Zone. It focused on improvement strategies to support educators in increasing student engagement, designing instruction that is based on conceptual understanding, and building classroom and school communities that support all learners in meeting standard. In addition, the district increased resources to the schools in the Renton Innovation Zone to support them in their intentional strategies to increase family partnerships.

Yet, we know we can’t do it alone, so in 2018 we further expanded this effort by engaging more deeply and explicitly with our community partners. The Renton Local Improvement Network (LIN) has been established to promote partnership between schools, families, community leaders, and community-based organizations. The groups work together with the goal of increasing math proficiency, strengthening the social and emotional learning, and serving the whole child.

Read the recent Local Improvement Network report which highlights lessons learned from year one of the first LIN pilot in Renton and tells the story of how this work began.
