Posted: Updated:

Guam - Department of Education Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Underwood said she received assurances from Adelup that funding for summer school will be shuffled over to DOE to ensure classes will be held. Acting Governor Mike Cruz stated, "If education is a priority that we say as politicians, then we just need to make sure that it is. Having been a student to summer school myself back in the ancient days I could see why it's important to all our students and families."

The money to hold summer school will come from the General Fund. Summer school was threatened to be cut because DOE is unable to access federal funds because a third party fiduciary agent must be hired first.

Summer classes are scheduled to start on June 14.
