Guam - Department of Education Deputy Superintendent Arlene Unpingco went to Inarajan Middle School today to further look into an incident where a child with special needs was tied to a tree in a nearby jungle by another child with special needs. Unpingco says her preliminary review shows that the school followed protocol by informing parents of the incident before the end of the school day.

Unpingco adds that she continues to work on a plan for when schools are short of personnel. She says she is also working with the students' parent who filed a complaint, explaining, "I've been in communication with the parent and, of course as I close the investigation on my end, then I will continue have that communication with the parent. So the parent is informed of what we are going to be doing to ensure that situations like these don't occur."

Unpingco says her final investigation report will determine what type action will be taken, if any, against those involved.
