"Team members said they would like to bottle up our kids, our teachers and our administration and take them with them," said Herb Neighbors, Mater Dei principal. The 15-member team from North Cen- tral Association wrapped up their week- long visit to Mater Dei last Friday. Their visit concludes a two-year process of self-study by the westside Evansville high school as prt of its application to be accredited by the North Central Association. At the end of the visit, the North Cen- tral team found that "what we had said, and what we had done, and what we are doing is a true reflection of our self- stud,," Neighbors said. Official documentation from North Central is expected in 45 to 60 days. A seven-member steering committee composed of Mater Dei faculty members has coordinated the self-study process. Debra Harrington has served as chairperson and committee members include Sister Jean Marie Ballard, Richard Keith, Dave Wathen, Mary Pat- tison, Carol Hudgions and Steve Rode. During the self-study process, the school scrutinized various areas, incuding: School and community Philosophy and goals Auxiliary services, including cafeteria and the bus service Guidance services Learning media services School facilities School staff and administration Student activities, including stu- dent council, athletics and student involvement Individual faculty members (Each faculty member supplied information concerning teaching credentials, teaching area and personal reflection.) The self-study also included an ex- amination of Mater Dei's curriculum, specifically: -- business education -- driver and traffic safety education See NORTH page 2
