Important Dates & Information

 

Overview

Rocky View Schools (RVS) is shaped like a horseshoe around the west, north and east boundaries of the City of Calgary. The division serves the educational needs of over 25,300 students within 51 schools. RVS is made up of six wards, with eight total trustee positions.

Over the past 20 years RVS has experienced tremendous growth and is currently the fifth largest school division in Alberta.

RVS’s Board of Trustees (the Board) is responsible for promoting an open and transparent learning system, while fulfilling its statutory obligations of setting directions, allocating resources and monitoring and reporting student and operational achievements.

The Superintendent of Schools reports directly to the Board. The superintendent works collaboratively with stakeholders with the assistance of four associate superintendents and staff in the areas of curriculum and instruction, professional learning, student transportation, human resources, communication, capital planning and facility maintenance.
