Guam - Joe San Agustin has resigned as Chairperson of the Guam Education Policy Board. In a letter addressed today to board members he stated that he will continue to serve as an elected member.  San Agustin recently was elected by his peers by majority vote to sit as Chairperson for a third time.

There was debate, however, as to whether he can serve in that position again because of a law enacted in 2007, prohibiting members from holding the chairmanship for more than two consecutive terms.

San Agustin says Rosie Tainatongo will serve as the interim board chairperson. He adds that the board is expected to select a new chairperson during the special meeting next Wednesday.
