With 10,346 students, 45 new teachers and 31 new support staff expected for the first day of school, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools looks forward to another school year.

“We believe that this school year will be great for our growing division and filled with many blessings,” said Vice-Chair Trustee, Murray Hollman at Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools.

The Board of Trustees’ priorities this year includes faith, inclusion, student success, board governess/effectiveness, stakeholder/community engagement and innovation. In addition to this, the Board will continue to advocate for our schools.
