Guam - The Guam Education Policy Board will hold a special emergency meeting on Thursday evening as they attempt to modify the Head Start Program budget. Finance Superintendent Taling Taitano says the board needs to reprogram $200,000 in personnel money that will be lost if the board doesn't move that cash into another category.
The money will be used to procure items and equipment for classrooms.
Taitano says the money will run out at the end of the month and because the board oversees the Head Start Program, they are the ones who can modify the use of the money. The emergency meeting is scheduled for 5:30 tomorrow evening at the Department of Education Conference Room in Hagatna.
