Canmore Collegiate High School

Help Shape Your Child’s Educational Journey

Canadian Rockies Public Schools (CRPS) is seeking parent feedback to refine its vision for the division’s 2025 – 2029 Four Year Education Plan, which is being developed over the next 14 months. At this time, CRPS is asking parents to reflect and respond to two questions before November 28, 2023:

Can you share some thoughts on your child's current learning journey?

How do you feel about your level of involvement in your child’s educational journey?   

Responses to these questions will be pivotal in developing effective educational strategies for CRPS’ new plan. The valuable perspectives gathered also will contribute to discussions at the Board of Trustees’ November 30 Council of Councils meeting, ensuring parent voices play a critical role in shaping the division's direction.
