Guam - The Textbook Committee is expected to discuss the issue of textbooks during a Guam Education Policy Board work session Tuesday afternoon. The General Services Agency put a hold on orders after raising a red flag on how the selection process was done.
Deputy Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Dr. Eva San Nicolas says they've been able to make revisions on the wording, adding, "I think the area they were concerned with was the communications with the vendors and we needed to be very clear that once this adoption begins, this should not be any communications to vendors. We clarified that verbally but they want to see that in writing."
San Nicolas says while a work session is scheduled for tomorrow, she says she's hoping the board will adopt the policies during its regular meeting next week. If approved, GSA could have orders keyed in and they can finally receive the much-needed textbooks.
