Guam - The Department of Education is crunching the numbers to find out how much it owes for teacher furloughs. According to DOE Legal Counsel Fred Nishihara, he's working with payroll and personnel to outline how much is owed to teachers in 2003 when the school year was pushed back.

But he says back in 1999, teachers were overpaid when school started early.  He explained, "It's a while but we have to go employee by employee because we cannot just lump everyone in the same situation because employees have transferred, some have retired and some have come on since 1999 and before 2003, so there's a bunch of circumstances that we have to go teacher by teacher to make a decision on a final number."

Nishihara says he expects to have those numbers submitted to him by the end of this week.
