Renton Community and Business Connections
The success of the Renton School District CTE programs can be partially attributed to the strong partnerships and collaboration with community groups, local businesses and industries.
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. Renton School District CTE 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.
CTE Advisory Resource Pool;
Your skills, interests and expertise are valuable to the students in Renton!
The CTE General Advisory Resource Pool is a group of community and industry partners who join with our staff to help in a variety of capacities. While some members assist CTE Administrators and teachers in a consultation or curriculum-review capacity, many more are helping in the classroom, program or club in more direct ways that are impacting both curriculum development and student experience.
Research shows that parent and community involvement can improve students' behavior, attendance, and achievement. We realize that everyone is busy and it can be difficult to commit to a long-term obligation. Fortunately, we have many opportunities that are short-term or one-time commitments. Please consider sharing your time and expertise with our students. We have no doubt you will enjoy the experience!
