2019/20 Student Accommodation Consultations

In 2019/20, Rocky View Schools (RVS) will be conducting public consultations to share information on proposed accommodation options for K - Gr. 8 students attending Cochrane schools and for K - Gr. 12 students residing in Kathyrn, Beiseker, Irricana and the rural area within the East Lake School attendance area.

Throughout the consultation process, students and parents will have the opportunity to learn more about accommodation trends and challenges facing RVS, possible accommodation changes, and ask questions and provide feedback. Residents are encouraged to keep abreast of the consultations via the Cochrane and Beiseker/Kathyrn/Irricana viewlets found below, where information specific to each community's consultation, including meeting dates, locations and resources, will be posted as it becomes available.
