A very active parent community supports Rawdon Elementary School (RES). By virtue of The Education Act, Section 42, parents have legal representation on the Governing Board of the school, a decisional body instrumental in approving school policies and orientations. The RES Governing Board consists of parents, school staff, and representatives from the community. The Governing Board is formed at the beginning of each school year. The Parents' Annual Assembly will be held in September 2017. At this assembly, the parents of the school elect the Governing Board parent representatives, as well as the parent representative to the school board.
