Guam - Patience is wearing thin for the JFK High School community, as they wait to see whether or not they will be situated at the interim campus in Tiyan. The Department of Education is working to approve a proposed amendment in the contract for the campus.
Teacher Angelo Andres says he's concerned because nothing has been finalized to date and it's already July, telling KUAM News, "There hasn't been any official word. I have heard that there are talks that we will be in Tiyan but again nothing official has come out. I don't know if it's a funding issue because that was the issue last year. But that's something that I guess needs to be dealt with as soon as possible."
Andres says it's disappointing that a contract for a new campus hasn't been signed. He says he fears that JFK will be going through the same issues year after year.
In the meantime, Governor's Legal Counsel Ray Haddock says the amendments will cost about $1 million, which is expected to come from the General Fund. The new contract would require CoreTech to make the requested changes.
