Renton School Board endorses Road Map Project

The Renton School Board has passed a resolution endorsing the Road Map Project, a region-wide effort to dramatically improve student achievement from cradle to college and career in South Seattle and South King County.

The Road Map Project’s goal is to double the number of students in the region who are on track to graduate from college or earn a career credential by 2020. The project also aims to close achievement gaps for low-income students and children of color.

The resolution was passed at the Renton School Board’s Aug. 8 meeting. This marks the third time a regional district has supported the Road Map Project.

The resolution underlines the importance of working alongside parents, communities, cities, youth development groups, community colleges and other organizations to increase student success. Todd Franceschina, president of the Renton School Board, said the Renton School District supports a region-wide collaborative approach to drive major improvements in student success.
