OPCY Advisory Committee

Dear Directors of Religious Education and Faith Formation,

We are in need of additional members for the OPCY Elementary Curriculum Advisory Committee, in order for our curriculum review to be representative of those actually using the personal safety materials.  We have had a number of persons who are now unable to fulfill their original interest that was expressed on the curriculum survey, due to family schedules, etc.  If you are unable to attend these four meetings, we are wondering if you might invite someone using the early education and elementary materials to attend.

The Advisory Committee will be meeting on the following dates:

Thursday, April 21, 2016                4:00 – 5:30 p.m., Hayden Building, Smith Hall

(Survey Overview, Criteria Review, Evaluation Tool Draft May Meeting Instructions)

Tuesday, May 10, 2016                  4:00 – 5:30 p.m., Hayden Building, Smith Hall

(Evaluation Tool Use, Bring Samples of Possible Curricula)

Tuesday, June 14, 2016                  9:00 – 3:30 p.m., Hayden Building, Smith Hall

(Vendor Presentations)

Thursday, June 16, 2016                9:00 – 3:30 p.m., Hayden Building, Smith Hall

(AM-Vendor Presentations; PM-Prepare Recommendations)

Please let us know whether you are able to make the four-meeting commitment to be on this advisory committee.  We would appreciate hearing from you by  April 15, 2016 so we can adequately prepare the materials for our first meeting.  Please respond to: opcy@archspm.org

Thank you for considering making this important commitment that will help all of the archdiocesan parishes and schools.

With Easter Blessings,

Mary Kane
