Bill reorganizes education policy board

by Michele Catahay

Guam - Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz has introduced Bill 424, relative to the reorganization of the Guam Education Policy Board. According to the bill, the board shall be composed of nine members appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the Legislature. If enacted into law, it would allow the board to have general supervision over the Department of Education and the control and direction of all funds to that agency subject to restrictions prescribed by law.

It would also allow the board to submit an annual budget to the Legislature and will have the authority to delegate such of its powers as it may deem appropriate. Members of the board will serve a staggered term of five years, except for the student member who shall serve a two year term. A member of the board can also be removed by a vote of five members for inability to discharge duties or for offenses involving moral turpitude.
