Renton Schools Foundation is governed by an elected Board of Directors.  The all-volunteer Board is comprised of parents, educators, alumni, and business and community leaders and strives to represent our school’s diverse community.   Voting Directors include at least one parent representative from each of the three service areas:  Renton High School, Hazen High School, and Lindbergh High School.

While we are also looking for people with experience in fundraising, public relations and marketing, and donor cultivation, we encourage anyone with any interest to contact us.

We are actively seeking additional Board Members, particularly parent representatives for each school service areas.
