Capital Planning and Construction
The Capital Projects Department is responsible for planning, coordinating and managing building and construction projects for the Renton School District which serves 15,000 students and 30 school and support facilities over roughly 33 square miles of Renton, Newcastle, and parts of unincorporated King County.
Thanks to overwhelming voter support in our school construction measures over the years, we're able to maintain our school buildings to high standards for student learning. Well-designed and highly-maintained schools can boost a child’s academic performance in reading, writing, math and other important subjects. There is considerable research linking students’ ability to learn and the conditions of their learning environment. School building design and facility conditions have also been associated with teacher motivation and effectiveness.
Proper school building operations and maintenance also helps reduce energy costs and increases energy efficiency at schools, regardless of age. And well-built, well-maintained schools improve neighborhood pride and appeal, and help maintain property values.
