JFK negotiations move back to DOE

by Michele Catahay

Guam - There is still no movement to secure an interim JFK High School campus. While the Department of Education told KUAM News last week that it would start negotiations with Core Tech International, governor's legal counsel Ray Haddock said the list of specifications was sent back to the agency.

He says DOE still needs to clarify what it needs for next school year. He says they still need to outline needs for Internet access.  "The specifications that were submitted were not sufficient in order to start negotiations so my initial recommendation was to emit that from this set of negotiations. However, their legal counsel said that is a priority and they want to include it, so we're going to wait for DOE to come up with those specifications," Haddock explained.

He further says once they determine what is needed, GovGuam can move forward with negotiations with Core Tech. In the meantime, there are only two months left until the opening of the new school year.
