Driving Questions: How might we develop engaging and authentic school based initiatives that help advance the goals in the RVS 4 year plan?
What opportunities exist in Rocky View for collaboration, community partnership and innovation?
Who will I need to support this initiative and in what ways?

Goals: To flesh out your innovative idea, and to share it to receive feedback for revision. Solidify your vision and package it so it can be shared with others.
