A word from the Rolling River Teachers' Association

The Rolling River Teachers' Association consists of approximately 138 teachers, including substitutes who are under contract with Rolling River School Division. Our Association consists of an executive and school representatives that meet once a monthly. Our meetings are on the third Tuesday or Wednesday of each month 5:00 p.m.. All teachers and principals are welcome to participate in any of our meetings or activities. Please contact our secretary for information.

The RRTA is part of the Manitoba Teachers' Society, the professional organization of over 13,400 public school teachers in Manitoba. The MTS is Manitoba's 3rd largest labour organization, with standing committees on Collective Bargaining, Professional Development, Education Finance, Workplace Safety & Health, Teacher Education & Certification, and Group Benefits.

Our Goal? To work for and with the members of the Rolling River Teachers' Association and the Manitoba Teachers' Society to improve teaching conditions and the standard of education for all students in Rolling River School Division and Manitoba's public schools.

Do you have something to share or want to get involved? We are always looking for input from our membership. Let's hear from you!  Interested in becoming involved? Join us!
