Guam - A conference call was held today between the Department of Education and their federal counterpart.  DOE Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood says today's discussions focused on the consolidated grant. 

Two more conference calls are scheduled for this week to discuss the draft request for proposal for the third-party fiduciary agent and another on the availability and use of American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funds.  "I think all of these calls are good because we're clarifying and the sooner that we can solve these questions, the sooner that we would have access to our funds," Underwood told KUAM News.
