The blue-ribbon committee charged with providing a long-term strategic plan for the health of Catholic schools is soliciting online comments from the public.

People sharing comments can include their name, e-mail address and relationship to Catholic schools. Students, parents, teachers, principals, pastors and others are all invited to offer suggestions.
The blue-ribbon committee is composed of well-known and respected area education, government, philanthropic and business leaders appointed by Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien.
The committee began its monthly meetings in March and is expected to present a report to Archbishop O’Brien in June of 2010.
