For Parents

Once your student begins attending Renton Technical College as a Running Start participant, the college considers them to be a “regular” college student. This means that the college faculty and staff are unable to discuss your student's record, progress, or standing without written authorization from him or her. This policy accords with the Buckley Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and WA C Chapter 132j-164.

For a more detailed explanation of this policy, please consult Renton Technical College's catalog.
