Guam - The Civil Service Commission has ruled that the Department of Education has been implementing the reclassification of teachers correctly. It was last week when D.L. Perez Elementary School principal James Nichols went before the CSC for a grievance hearing regarding the reclassification of teachers as a result of a public law that gave the certification responsibilities to an independent commission.

DOE Legal Counsel Fred Nishihara said, "The Civil Service Commission basically ruled that management prevailed in the reclassification and how we're applying it with the current rules and regulations as well as the current certification requirements. we are preparing a packet for the board of education to consider to make some changes to align both the independent commission for certification, as well as DOE board policies."

Nishihara says DOE will go before the board in hopes to adopt new policies that align both the certification commission and DOE when it comes to the reclassification of teachers.
