Lack of funds halt DOE night school

Guam - Guam Education Policy Board Chairperson Joe San Agustin says he's disappointed with the fact the night school for the island's high school students is currently on hold. San Agustin says the Department of Education won't be able to fund Eskuelen Puengi (DOE's night school program) until the agency gets the funds from the Consolidated Grant.

DOE is waiting to hear from the feds whether a request for proposal can be announced to hire a third-party fiduciary agent.  Said San Agustin, "I'm not happy with that, but that's the course of action the superintendent has to take until the fiduciary agent is hired, and that's the only thing.  The only sad part is that every time they submit a proposed document to the USDOE, they get 'Well, you need to add this. You need to change this,' and then they'll re-add this and change what they need to do.

"They'll also add things that are necessary and they'll send it back and it'll come back and it's just going back and forth."
