DOE wants to use Tiyan for multiple years

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Department of Education is hoping to use CoreTech's Tiyan property for a multiyear lease, instead of having JFK High School students use it for one year.  According to DOE Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood, during the Guam Education Policy Board's special meeting on Monday, the board approved the recommendation to have DOE use the interim JFK campus for more than a year.

She says the question is whether the department would need to have it put out for bid or renew the lease already in existence.  "Last year it was passed by the Legislature to be a year to year lease and now we're trying to recommend a multiyear lease, so we need to get clarification from the attorney general based on the recommendation of the board's attorney whether, procurement wise, we need to re-bid it or just renew," she said.

DOE included more than $6,000,000 in its supplemental budget to cover the lease.  In the meantime, the department has until the end of March to inform core tech on whether DOE plans to use the facility as a school come next school year.
