Advancing Public Education: 2013-2017 Advocacy PositionsAdvocacy

Over the next 45 months, Trustees will meet individual and/or as a Board with government officials, municipal representatives, and parent groups to articulate the Board of Trustee’s key advocacy position for its 2013-2017 term.

Solidified and approved in early February, the positions Trustees want the Government of Alberta to consider are:

  • Providing adequate and targeted funding for new schools and modernizations;
  • Ensuring equitable access to education;
  • Securing regional child and family supports; and,
  • Expanding mental health services for children and youth.

Serving an Increasingly Diverse Student Populationadvocacy update

In October 2015, Trustees reviewed and updated their advocacy positions to ensure they were in alignment with the needs of the jurisdiction. 2015/16 Priorities identified were:

  • As one of the fastest growing school boards in the province, Rocky View Schools advocates for capital approvals that are transparent, communicated publicly, and ensure school sites are adequately sized and serviced.
  •  Identified as the lowest per student funded board in the province, Rocky View Schools advocates for a review of Alberta Education’s funding formula to ensure equitable access to funding for all public school boards.
  • With an increasingly diverse student population, Rocky View Schools advocates for expanding collaborative regional wrap-around services, with a specific focus on early childhood services, mental health, complex needs, and First Nations Métis and Inuit students and English language learners.
