2020 Provincial Budget Announcement

Rocky View Schools to work through the implications of new funding model in coming weeks.

Keeping Stakeholders Informed

Given Alberta's 2020 budget will see school boards' dollars flowing through a new funding model with a different grant structure, it will take time for Rocky View Schools' (RVS) administration to determine the impact of the budget on the services it can provide students.

As one of the fastest growing boards in the province, RVS' Board of Trustees is concerned that the new weighted moving average methodology will not fully fund the jurisdiction's annual growth of over 800 new students next school year.

As promised, RVS remains committed to keeping its communities informed and will outline its direction forward in the coming weeks. The jurisdiction would like to remind parents and staff that the results from its Phase 1 budget priority survey will be released, March 10, 2020.

For full details on the jurisdiction's 2020 Budget Consultation, please visit RVS' public website.
