Update Re: KSS Investigation Process
From the Kahnawà:ke Combined Schools Committee (KCSC) - (PDF)
The purpose of this communiqué is to update the parents, KSS In-School Committee, teachers and staff of the Kahnawake Survival School (KSS) regarding the status of the investigation on events that occurred in late-November at KSS.
As the governing body established and mandated to oversee the Kahnawà:ke Education Center (KEC), the KCSC has been exercising its due diligence by closely monitoring the situation and receiving regular updates on developments from the KEC Director.
While a preliminary investigation was conducted by the KEC Director, the KEC administration is in the process of preparing for a second phase, notably by determining the scope and parameters of a more comprehensive inquiry. Among other things, the KEC administration has been in contact with and consulted outside resources. Once we have determined who will oversee the investigation, we will proceed to map out the scope and projected timeframes for completion of the investigation.
In the meantime, the KCSC is kindly requesting the parents, the KSS In-School Committee and the KSS staff and teachers for their patience and to allow the investigation to proceed with due process. Rest assured, the KCSC along with the KEC Director will provide the parents and the KSS staff and teachers updates on the status of the investigation in accordance with our duties and responsibilities as a governing board and as the KEC Director of Education.
Finally, please keep in mind that in addition to this important file, the KEC Director and Administration are concurrently addressing many other priorities to ensure the well-being of the entire education system.
As always, we welcome your questions, comments or concerns.
