2019/20 Student Accommodation Consultations

In 2018/19, Rocky View Schools (RVS) will be conducting public consultations for families in east Airdrie and in Chestermere, to discuss possible changes to attendance areas to accommodate student enrolments.

Throughout the consultation process, students and parents will have the opportunity to learn more about accommodation trends and challenges facing RVS, possible accommodation changes, and ask questions and provide feedback. Residents are encouraged to keep abreast of the consultations via the East Airdrie and Chestermere viewlets found below, where information specific to each community's consultation, including meeting dates, locations and resources will be posted as it becomes available.
