As a not-for-profit charitable society, River Valley School has a Board of Governors that oversees the governance of the organization. Their primary focus is long-term strategic work for the school, maintenance of our mission and vision as well as ensuring that we are operating in compliance with the legal requirements of a charitable society and a private school under the School Act. The Board and Head of School work together in these areas and the Head of School reports monthly on the operational components of River Valley School.
