DOE taking minimalist approach to JFK needs

by Michele Catahay

Guam - The Department of Education is working to minimize its list of priorities for the interim JFK High School campus. According to Legal Counsel Fred Nishihara, improvements totaled $1.5 million, but the numbers may change.

Governor's Legal Counsel Ray Haddock has asked DOE to be more specific when it comes to Internet access requirements. Nishihara says he's working on those issues and officials will also go over a list of eleven items on that list. "Already the superintendent has made a decision that we will not be requesting the landlord to build a new science building, that was #11 on the list. Right now we're at the point of saying no parking lot for the school because that's already a half-million cost."

Nishihara couldn't say how long DOE plans to use the facility for JFK, as the contract for a new campus could remain in litigation.
