WHO WE ARE
We serve students, parents, and families who reside in the Renton Innovation Zone Partnership (RIZP).
The Renton Innovation Zone Partnership’s (RIZP) mission is to lead a relationship-based, data-informed collaborative network to advance racial equity and create healthy learning opportunities for all children throughout the Renton Innovation Zone. We support strategies for basic needs, community/family engagement, and early learning resources for families and students who reside in the Skyway and Renton Highlands communities. The majority of families and students who reside in RIZP neighborhoods identify as students/families of color. These residents live in an unincorporated area of King County and are limited in resources and available opportunities for just about anything.
Through collaborative efforts, the RIZP works with partners and community-based organizations to bridge these gaps and assist in improving educational equity. With many opportunities to expand, this work is primarily focused on four elementary schools within the Renton School District (RSD): Lakeridge, Campbell Hill, Bryn Mawr, and Highlands. In February of 2022, we will formally launch our new Middle School Transition strategy, working with Dimmitt and McKnight Middle Schools. As of September 2019, the RIZP has joined RVC Seattle as an Operations Support Partner for fiscal sponsorship.
We lead a relationship-based, data-informed collaborative network that will advance racial equity and create healthy learning opportunities for all children throughout the Renton Innovation Zone.
We work to ensure that every child is thriving, supported, connected, and is inspired to learn.
