Every RancheView leader can have two books from the Learning Commons. Overdue notices are sent to leaders' @rvschools email account.

Online Information

Our student leaders and adult leaders can get current, relevant, authoritative, accurate and fit for purpose information online! You don't need to figure out if that web page you 'googled' is a good one. Use these links instead:

Rocky View School District Resources
RVSD lists the online information available and also lists good websites to use that have access to free, credible information.

 

Online Reference Centre Databases
Learn Alberta - Online Reference Centre

Learn Alberta gives access to all students, teachers, and parents in Alberta. If you need the login information, please contact your teacher or Ms. Wise.

If you need help figuring out what database to use, go to the ORC support site.
