Governor, JFK stakeholders to meet Tuesday

Guam - Governor Felix Camacho is expected to meet with JFK High School stakeholders during a meeting scheduled for tomorrow afternoon.  JFK High is looking for an interim campus for next school year while the contract for the permanent one remains in litigation.

Science teacher Angelo Andres says he's hoping to discuss various issues ranging from not only the interim campus in Tiyan, but to ensure JFK gets the facilities it needs to move on with curricular programs such as robotics. More importantly, Andres says he would like to know what's going to be done to ensure students get a permanent campus.

Andres told KUAM News, "We would also like the governor to give us some guidance and hopefully some advice on what his office is doing to expedite the progress on the rebuild. The seniors are going to be there and they're going to ask the governor whether he would support their efforts for them to graduate at Ramsey Field for their graduation."

Andres says members of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges will be visiting JFK next year. He says the lack of a permanent campus could impact accreditation.
