About Director Scovel

Your current Renton School Board Director (District 5)

Advocating for Every Child

I am a fierce advocate for public school education and its role as the foundation for our society, economy, health, and well-being. I come from a family with many school teachers, and I hold the utmost respect for our dedicated educators and staff.

My professional discipline is continuous improvement, and I bring this lens to my role as school board director. The pace of change in our world is only increasing, and we must innovate and adapt to prepare our students to thrive now and in the future. Change is uncomfortable, but it is also where the growth occurs.

My family moved to Renton Highlands in 2015. My husband is an attorney, and we have two elementary children attending Renton Schools with a third who will join in a few years. We are active volunteers in our community through youth sports/activities and board/committee service.

Let’s invest in our community to build a brighter and more just future. Thank you for your perspectives, ideas, and collaboration.
I hope I can count on your support.
