Providing Oversight of the Public Education System
RVS Board of Trustees are community members elected to provide thoughtful oversight of the public education system.
The community entrusts them with creating the conditions in which students and teachers can do their best work. They are responsible for education and capital plans and budgets, and to hold the superintendent accountable.
Like RVS students, trustees begin with big questions: What learning outcomes are most important to students, parents, teachers, our local communities and provincial government? What conditions are required to foster innovation? What stands in the way of students achieving their potential and how can we move beyond these barriers?
To answer these questions, trustees keep open doors and open minds, engaging and actively listening to a wide variety of stakeholder groups.
It is a tall order and few citizens put their names forward for the challenge.
What unites trustees is a passion for community and a deeply-held belief that the key to a bright future is to provide the best supports possible to the development and growth of our youngest citizens – true champions of education.
