Superintendent, Renton School District

Dear Renton community,

On behalf of almost 15,000 students and 2,000 staff, thank you for your support of and confidence in the Renton School District. You once again approved our Maintenance and Operation Levy and our Technology Levy with overwhelming support. Approval of these measures enables the district to better address individual student needs, offer district-wide programs to ensure student success, and maintain safe learning environments, thus preparing our students for their roles in the 21st century and beyond.

I want to particularly thank the members of the Citizens for Renton Schools Committee for their hard work in this effort. We are blessed to have leaders throughout our community who are making a difference, and who are clearly committed to making Renton a great place to live, learn, work and play!

A high-quality education is perhaps the most essential solution to our national economic recovery and the best insurance possible for preparing our students for fulfilling lives. The welfare and safety of our community depends on a quality public education system. As our community continues to grow, your enduring support sustains Renton’s good work on behalf of the next generations of citizens. Our staff is committed to meeting the needs of each and every student and, with your outstanding support, we can help students reach their full potential and pursue their dreams.

Schools and districts do not accomplish these critical outcomes alone. The Renton community is an outstanding example for our country of how, working together through strong partnerships, public education can make a difference for our future as a nation.

I am proud to be the superintendent of school in this great community. I commit to you our continued focus on our primary purpose - student success. The Renton School District will maintain and build on its record of excellence in responsible stewardship of your taxpayer dollars.

With gratitude, Dr. Mary Alice Heuschel, superintendent, Renton School District
