Guam - Although they did not discuss the recent $5 million dollar litigation between the Department of Education and the Guam Federation of Teachers, Guam Education Policy Board chairperson Ron Ayuyu says they did finalize the agency's budget. The board during last night's meeting adopted the $266 million Fiscal Year 2011 budget, which Ayuyu says has now been forwarded to the Legislature for their review.
"We offer what's based by the school administrators based on their budget and if they do give us that full allotment that would be good, but usually the Legislature's cuts it further down," said Ayuyu.
In the meantime, a special board meeting has been scheduled for next Wednesday to discuss the millions in furlough payments owed to JFK High School teachers back in 2003.
