Rocky View School Division No. 41 or Rocky View Schools (RVS) is the public school authority that serves students to the west, north and east of the City of Calgary in the province of Alberta.
The original board's name was called Calgary Rural Schools Division #41, then eventually changed to Rocky View Schools.
RVS serves approximately 25,000 students with educational services from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The district operates 51 schools in its jurisdiction.
RVS is the fifth-largest school board in Alberta, and operates independently of its neighbouring Calgary school boards; Calgary Board of Education and the Calgary Catholic School District, but still operates under the direct authority of the provincial government of Alberta. The board consists of eight members who are elected every four years during municipal elections to represent seven urban and rural wards.
RVS offers a variety of special programming to its students, such as French Immersion, Christian Education, Home Education and Outreach Campuses. The district board also recognizes students and their families with First Nations, Metis, and Inuit heritage by providing support services and programs through Native Liaison Workers.
