Students & Families

Based on continued increase in COVID-19 cases notably among young people throughout the region and specifically in South King County, Renton School District will begin the 2020-2021 school year on Sept. 2 with fully in-home learning. 

At this time, we cannot predict how long we will remain in the in-home learning model. Our goal is to begin in-person instruction in our hybrid in-school/in-home model when public health authorities advise that it is safe. At that time, families will have the option to continue in-home learning if they choose. 

We have learned from your feedback and our experience last spring and we continue to work to improve in-home learning and communication between students and teachers, including modifying in-home learning to include more live instruction, small group support, and fewer learning platforms. In addition, teams will collaborate with families to address the needs of students with disabilities and special learning needs. We are working with our bargaining partners now and will soon provide more details on the specifics regarding improvements to in-home learning.
