For Parents

Wild Rose School Division believes that parental/guardian involvement in their children's education is important to their students' success. We encourage parents to get involved with their son or daughters education, be in regular contact with the teacher(s) and the school and  to actively get involved in their schools parent council.

Wild Rose School Division:

Values the importance of collaborative relationships with the extended community (families, residents, neighbors, businesses, government agencies, other education jurisdictions and post secondary institutions).

Involves parents as active partners in creating student success.

Develops and maintains effective (open, purposeful, interactive, appropriate and proactive) communication between itself, the schools, the students, the parents and the extended community.

Promotes effective communications that:

  • Build credibility and trust
  • Enhance public understanding
  • Realize effective relationships
  • Stimulate public interest and participation
  • Are sensitive to public attitudes and perceptions
  • Provide continuous, objective and comprehensive information
