As locally elected officials, RVS’ Board of Trustees advocates to continually improve Alberta’s Kindergarten to Grade 12 system for our students.
RVS' greatest challenge, most critical need and the focus of our advocacy efforts is Space for Students. We urgently need more Space for Students in Airdrie, Cochrane and Chestermere.
RVS has more than 28,600 students and welcomes another 750 to 1,000 each year – enough to fill one to two new schools.
Provincial government approval and funding for new schools, additions and modular classrooms are critical to accommodate our fast-growing communities. Investing in space for students improves students’ opportunity and ability to learn and achieve their absolute best. Without this approval, many of our students will learn in schools and classrooms without appropriate space for years to come.
