lb r ;% 2 ,he Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana September 4, 199 r' Back to school " II Briefly Persons willing to substitute teach sought E'ch year various Catholic schools need to complete a list- ing of wailable teachers who hold a valid Indiana teaching li- cense or Indiana substitute certificate who will serve as substi- tutes. The Office of Education at the Catholic Center attempts to match the needs of the schools with those teachers indicating the willingness to substitute. Anyone who is interested in applying for substituting should contact the Office of Education, 4200 N. Kentucky Ave., Evansville, Ind. 47711, or phone 424-5536 or 1-800-637-1731 ' Diocesan schools comply with privacy act Catholic schools in the Diocese of Evansville comply with *the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act by releasing cer- tain directory information. Directory information consists of name, address, phone, state and dale of birth, major field of study, the participation in officially recognized activities and athletics, weight and height, date of attendance, award(s) re- ceived, honor roll and other pertinent information. Parents who object to the release of any of the above infor- mation must write to the principal requesting their children not be included in any appropriate listing. The written request must be submitted within 15 days of the beginning of school. Catholic schools require immunizations Effective Aug. 1, 1980, Public Law 150, Acts of 1980, amends Indiana Code 20-8, 1-7-10 to require immunization of all children enrolled in a school. Previously, only those children en- rolling for the first time were required to be immunized. Now all children must be immunized, and by siate law, children must furnish written proQf of immunization by the first day of school. Catholic schools do not discriminate Students of other religious faiths are welcome to attend Catholic schools. Catholic schools in the Diocese of Evansville do not dis- criminate on the basis of color, sex, age or location of national origin. Schools to use new mathematics texts Following the annual adoption cycle recommended by the Indiana Department of Education, students in the diocese will be using new mathematics books and materials this fall. A new committee will now begin meeting to work on the curriculum adoption for the next school year. This process is done during the school year prior to the adoption year. The committee will determine which science and health books and materials will be used in the 1993-94 school year. In 1989, the diocese started adopting the same texts and ma- teria!s for all of the schools in each of the curricular areas. This ,allows for greater consistency inprograms offered and an easier transition in the event of a transfer of students from one school another. In-service opportunities are also much easier to pro- ide for teachers when working with one publishing mmpany. $I I I Id,.
