Road Map Improvement Collaborative
The Road Map Improvement Collaborative (RMIC) serves as a space for collaboration, adaptive leadership, learning, & transformation to actualize, in the words of Renton Superintendent Dr. Damien Pattenaude, "a blood oath of regional commitment" to creating just and humanizing schools, together.
In 2022, 120 Youth of Color engaged in conversations with other Youth of Color about supporting, retaining, and recruiting Teachers and other Educators of Color. Almost all youth attended middle schools or high schools in South King County school districts. Conversations focused on experiences with Educators of Color, what it looks like to them for Educators of Color to thrive, the importance of having a more diverse educator workforce, and youth's own interests in education and teaching careers.
