Yigo school shows signs of improvement

Guam - D. L. Perez Elementary School is making the grade when it comes to fixing up the campus and ensuring the safety and health of students.  Education Suruhanu Dominic Terlaje and regulatory agencies conducted an inspection of the Yigo campus, which previously received a 'C' rating this afternoon. 

Department of Education Facilities and Maintenance Manager Billy Cruz says the school would have received an 'A' rating but because of one repeated violation, a lack of self-closing devices on all classroom doors, a 'B' rating was issued. The inspection team notes significant improvement at the campus.

"They had some storm drainage that needed to be repaired/fixed," said Cruz.  "They had bare wood around the campus.  There were more air conditioners that were down previously. Air curtains that were done and a lot of painting that needed to be done and windows that need to be repaired so all those were actually all done."

Cruz says he expects another inspection will be held next week once the school fixes a few light bulbs and ensures self closing devices are installed on the doors. Once those issues are fixed, Cruz says the school and cafeteria will get an 'A' rating.
