In our previous white envelope, every family received a letter from Dr. Barbara O’Block, the superintendent of the Diocese of Gary schools. The letter explained how the diocesan schools are now accredited not only by the state of Indiana, but also the national accreditation group, AdvancED. Part of the process of accreditation is surveying all stakeholders about issues rele- vant to individual school districts or corporations. The first survey we are doing as a diocese covers the area of Catholic identity. Within the letter you received was an access code to the survey. The diocese needs and wants your input in this process.
