Guam - Guam Federation of Teachers President Matt Rector is urging the Guam Education Policy Board to resolve the situation regarding the furlough pay owed to teachers for school year '03-'04. GFT notes its successful win in the case concerning money that was illegally taken from teachers in during that year.

While Rector says that the Civil Service Commission and the courts have both ruled in favor for these teachers, Guam Education Policy Board finance committee chairman Joe San Agustin says the issue is out of their hands.

"It's estimated at $3.8M that GFT is reporting," he said, "but when I ask the legal counsel of DOE he said its go to be less because there was some folks that were paid and  overpaid, there's a lot of questions that need to settled at the court. Once it's settled then the board will accept it then let the course of action take place."

Meanwhile, the board is meeting in a work session this evening to discuss the Department of Education's budget.
