Plans for interim JFK still under discussion

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Department of Education continues to work on specifications for the interim JFK High School campus. Last week, DOE met with the Governor's Office to discuss their needs.

Legal Counsel Fred Nishihara says they're currently reviewing the costs.  He told KUAM News, "Basically, what can the Government of Guam afford? How can we fund it? Will it be a combination of tax credits and cash?  The landlord may want cash only. So those are the things that are still in negotiations, but it does look good because both parties want this to happen. From DOE's side, we've asked for at least two more school years and we're working hard to get this done."

Although the Attorney General's Office has said DOE would need to issue out a new request for proposal if it wanted to include capital projects to own, Nishihara says items such as Internet access and canopies will probably be negotiated with Core Tech International. Here, he says with negotiating, the landlord could probably provide the items at the school site.
