At yesterday's Rocky View Schools (RVS) annual board meeting, highlights of the Annual Education Results Report (AERR) were presented.
The RVS 2022–2023 AERR, which is based on performance measures from the 2019–2023 Four-Year Plan, showcases achievements and programs meant to assist students in discovering their passions, interests, and people; realizing their potential; and navigating the world as responsible global citizens during their time in school.
This RVS AERR edition maintains its strategy of combining data with storytelling. In the AERR, one is able to see important teaching practices, events and activities taking place within RVS on a daily basis.
Here are some of the highlights RVS provided about the AERR:
- Overall, diploma exam results are at the provincial average, while our high school completion rates are better than the provincial average.
- The majority of students in grades one to four demonstrated growth in literacy and numeracy skills as measured by the English Letter Name-Sound assessment (LeNS), The Castles and Coltheart 3 (CC3) assessment and Alberta Numeracy Screening Assessment.
- RVS students feel they can get the help they need in school; however, they also indicated they could use support in developing conflict resolution skills.

Also at the meeting, The Board approved the sub-division agreement of the jointly owned land in South West Airdrie.
The partners, RVS, City of Airdrie and Mattamy Limited, will subdivide the quarter section of land into portions for RVS, the City and the developer. RVS’ portion of the land will be used for a future Airdrie high school.
