GEPB creating deputy position for outreach

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The Guam Education Policy Board tackled several issues during last night's meeting to include the status of the adoption of school textbooks. GEPB Chairperson Ron Ayuyu says the board was notified of several financial textbook issues that prevent the Department of Education from adopting textbooks every six years.

Ayuyu says textbook adoptions will remain every seven years until funds can be found. Ayuyu adds that the legal counsel is still working out the issues with the $5 million in furlough payments owed to teachers. "The teacher furloughs is still pending, I know we had a supplemental that we suppose to work on passing a resolution but that didn't go through so we still have other pending issues that need to be cleared again," he told KUAM News.

Ayuyu says a work session will also be held to discuss the creation of a fourth deputy superintendent position for community outreach and relations services. The position is paying between $80,000 and $110,000 a year.
