Business/Industry and Community Connections
The success of the Renton School District Career and Technical Education programs can be partially attributed to the strong partnerships and collaboration with community groups, local businesses and industries. These partnerships help to garner support for the programs, students, and staff.
Participating business partners help chaperone student activities; open their businesses up to student interns, job shadow experiences, and employment. They also participate in classroom presentations, tutoring, and mentoring activities. The Renton School District CTE division has developed partnerships with over 200 community members who serve on the current CTE Advisory Resource Pool and function in a variety of capacities to support students and staff. This Advisory Resource Pool serves in place of traditional advisory committees and has proven to be a more effective and efficient model.
Please give some thought about how your skills, interests, training, or experience could provide a ‘real-life’ application to the curriculum or student activities.
