Ward Boundary Review
Call For Action
Rocky View Schools’ Board of Trustees reached out to its electors in late 2016 as part of a review of electoral ward boundaries. The review is in keeping with the Board’s desire to ensure good governance and to examine the Board’s electoral representation across the jurisdiction.
As of January 2013 the total population of the region was approximately 122,220; by 2015 the population of the region had grown to 145,363. This growth has seen uneven distribution of population across the jurisdiction.
Alberta School Boards Association Education Consultant Brian Callaghan was retained to lead the review. He held a series of town hall style meetings to share a variety of options and gather feedback. The public meetings were held on:
- Cochrane & Area @ RancheView School - November 29, 7:00 to 8:30pm
- Chestermere & Area @ Chestermere High School - November 30, 7:00 to 8:30pm
- Springbank & Area @ Springbank Middle School - December 5, 7:00 to 8:30pm
- Airdrie & Area @ Education Centre - December 8, 7:00 to 8:30pm
At the meetings the public reviewed options under consideration (public meeting powerpoint) and all RVS residents had the opportunity to feedback online via Ward Boundary Review Survey. The survey was open from November 7 to December 9, 2016.
