Sept. 26, 2018

Dear St. Isidore's Faculty, Staff and Parents:

I am writing to you today to update you on the school administration and governance as the Diocese conducts its investigation at St. Isidore Parish.

As Pastor, Fr. Moran is responsible for the entire parish including the parish school. However, since he is on administrative leave, I would lili:e to assure you of my care and concern for St. Isidore School. While Fr. Schmidt is the Parochial Administrator of the parish, I have decided to appoint Ms. Kathleen Radecke, Superintendent of Schools, as Canonical Administrator Pro tem of the school.

In other words, I have delegated to Ms. Radecke the canonical responsibility for St. Isidore School. In this role, she will be Mrs. Ward's direct supervisor and assist her in all areas of governance including finances, personnel and major grievances. You will see Ms. Radecke at St. Isidore School on a regular basis and I know she is looking fo1ward to supporting your school administration in the fulfillment of your school's mission.

I want to take this opportunity to assure you that the physical and emotional safety of your children is our primary responsibility and, along with your wonderful faculty and staff, we will work together towards providing a safe environment for your children and a successful school year.

With the assurance of my prayers and blessing, I am

Sincerely yours in Christ,

The Most Reverend Michael C. Barber, SJ
