People Strategy

About the Strategy

The People Strategy provides multilingual and culturally appropriate support to families and individuals of all ages to build on their assets and strengths to become self-sufficient and achieve their goals. The strategy targets five areas which include health, kindergarten readiness, continuous academic success, college and career readiness, and promoting self-sufficiency.

Current Projects in the People Strategy

Renton Innovation Zone (RIZ) improvement strategies 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.

The district works with each school to evaluate the specific needs of their students and teachers and create action plans that will address long-term improvement in standardized test scores, student comprehension and building teacher support teams.

The Sunset Multi-Service & Career Development Center is an integral part of the Sunset Area Transformation Plan and a critical community improvement to more effectively respond to the human service needs of residents in the neighborhood and surrounding community. 

Once completed, the center will serve as an anchor facility for education, training, health, and social services for public housing and other low-income residents who live in the Sunset Area and surrounding community.
