The KCSC regrets to announce the following resignations:
• General Seat Representative--Kateri Oesterreich, effective April 29, 2019.

After much consideration, both representatives made the difficult decision to vacate their respective seats.
The Kateri School In-School Committee appointed Kaylea as their representative November 3, 2017. She served as KCSC Interim Chairperson from November 2018, also sitting on various legislation and policy sub-committees. Kateri was elected at the November 28, 2018 Annual General Assembly. She brought her previous board and HR experience to the table, offering input on educational decisions during her term.
The KCSC is pleased to announce Karonhianónhnha Tsi-Ionterihwaienstáhkhwa selected Leslie-Ann Stacey as an In-School representative at their March 28, 2019 In-School meeting. Leslie-Ann has worked in the Kahnawà:ke Education system for many years. She is currently completing her Master’s degree in Inclusive Education at McGill University. We are pleased to have her at the KCSC table and look forward to her input on educational matters.
The resignations see three vacancies at the KCSC table, including one (1) Karonhianónhnha Tsi-Ionterihwaienstáhkhwa seat needing representation. The KCSC expects the Karonhianónhnha and Kateri In-School Committees to fill their respective seats at duly convened In-School elections. The General Representative seat remains vacant until the KCSC Annual General Assembly elections held in the fall of each year.
The KCSC wishes Kaylea and Kateri the best in their future endeavours. We will miss their input at the committee table.
