Old Business:

1.      Tuition Letter – Jon wrote it; Father Dan is to take it to the Diocese.  It has not been taken yet.  We need to be accepted as a Choice School.  We are really in a bind here, because it has taken so long to get this accomplished.

2.     We will go over the Sports Policy at next month’s meeting


New Business:

1.     Constitution changes; see hand out.

2.     We should add “recruiting future board members” to the responsibilities of the Catholic Identity committee.
