The ISU study analyzed the needs of the two schools, focus- mg on enrollment, curriculum and facility needs. The study con- cluded that to continue offering a superior Catholic education, Memorial and Mater Dei both required expansion and renova- tion, Beshears said. A feasibility study provided positive responses from hundreds of alumni, friends and parents. At that time, the Evansville Catholic Interparochial High School Board decided to proceed with the campaign. h:d;posed building project at Mater Dei High School, tile, at right, will include the construction of an aud i- toriurn, which will be placed in the middle of the school s COurtyard. There will also be four science classrooms and two general purpose classrooms. The administrative offices will lso be centralized. The proposed building project at Memorial High School, Evansville, at left, will include the construction of an auxil- iary gym.

Ue Promotion of ..-vuon, Safe,- Ou_, . ty and Support for ---u ad Neglected Children Act -- was a positive compro- rnise "because it works on both problems in the child protection system." Hearings on the act, known as the PASS Act, were held before the Senate Committee on Finance Oct. 8. Unlike current child welfare law, the bill stresses that chil- dren's safety must be the first priority in foster care and adop- tion. The bill specifies that states are not required to return chil- dren in foster care to families where "aggravated circum- stances," such as murder, have taken place. It requires states to move toward terminating parental rights in these cir- cumstances. The proposed legislation also mandates that states initiate proceedings to place children in adoptive homes when they have spent 12 of the previous 18 months in foster care. " WIY ate We .srNling?
