The Red Deer Catholic School Board has disqualified Monique LaGrange for violating sanctions issued after she likened LGBTQ pride to Nazi Germany in a social media post.
The board made the decision Tuesday morning and announced the move in a news release.
“I affirm our unwavering dedication to fostering a safe, secure, caring, respectful and inclusive learning environment for our students, staff and community members,” said board chair Murray Hollman in the release.
“Regrettably, as a result of trustee LaGrange’s violation of the sanctions placed on her on September 26, 2023, as well as her additional violations of board policy and the Education Act, the board made the challenging decision to disqualify trustee LaGrange.”
The board says that as a result of the disqualification, as per Section 90 of the Education Act, LaGrange resigned from her position.
Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools serves over 10,650 students in 21 schools in Red Deer, Sylvan Lake, Rocky Mountain House, Innisfail, and Olds.
