McDonald of Little Rock. The board adopts school policies and regulations and sets salary scales for teachers. A new handbook of policies and regulations is being published this year to update the last one put out in 1979. Another of Sister Henrietta's duties is to co- ordinate efforts of Schools Consultants in developing policies. There are 12 con- sultants - six elementary and six secondary principals. They approve the school calendar, the agenda for the annual teachers' meeting, the students' assessment to the diocesan office, and all matters pertaining to the general operation of the schools. Each consultant serves for three years. She also organizes curriculum committees to evaluate textbooks. "These committees make recom- mendations to our schools each year," she explained. "We ask the schools to recommend a teacher ac- diocesan schools to send in suggestions and recom- mendations. "We follow the State of Arkansas textbook adoption cycle. We often choose the same ones as they do as they are sometimes the best available on various subjects. We change books every five years on the average. And by working with the state, we get the state-contracted price which reflects a nice discount on them," she said with a mischievous twinkle in her eye. Each year, teachers have an annual conference tually out in the field working to serve on the committee. "This past year, the committees studied language arts and this year, they will be studying mathematics and fine arts texts. Religion texts will also be studied this year in view of making recom- mendations to the Bishop. As the chief teacher in the diocese, the Bishop makes the final decision concerning religion texts. "The elementary textbook committee reviews texts in the fall and the secondary at Catholic High School. "Usually, 500 or so teachers attend," Sister Henrietta said. "We have workshops and swap shops (exchange of views and experiences) throughout the day." Another of Sister Henrietta's duties is to make annual visits to evaluate each school in the diocese. "We have 40 schools in all -- 34 elementary and six high schools," she said. "I usually review three areas when I visit a school. First, I evaluate the total school. If the atmosphere is relaxed, I know it is running smoothly.
