The Sun West School Division is governed by a Board of Education consisting of ten elected members. The Board selects the Director of Education who is responsible for regular operations. The Director works with a staff of 25 people out of the Division Office in Rosetown to insure students receive the best education possible in the most cost-effective manner available.
Located in west-central Saskatchewan, the Sun West School Division covers approximately 31,252 square kilometers. On its east side, the Division includes schools in Davidson and Kenaston. The Alberta border serves as the Division's limits on the west, with the South Saskatchewan River providing its most southerly border. The Division extends as far North as Landis and Biggar.
Prior to 2006, the area currently administered by Sun West included six school divisions. These were Kindersley, Rosetown, Eston-Elrose, Outlook, Davidson and Biggar School Divisions. on January 1, 2006, these six legacy divisions were combined to form the Sun West School Division as part of the provincial government's re-structuring of rural school divisions in Saskatchewan.
