Guam - The Charter School Council is moving forward with the process to begin charter schools for Guam. Council Chairperson Rosa Palomo says so far they received an application from the National Institute for Direct Instruction, who is hoping to implement a charter school in School Year 2011-2012.

The plans and application was part of the Council's public hearing last Friday, and Palomo says the Council will have 30 days to decide once reviewing the packets for any applicant.  "We want to do justice for the whole concept of charter schools, our job is to review the applications and make sure that it is a design and has a curriculum that is going to be successful," she told KUAM News.

Meanwhile, Palomo says they are still hoping to fill three positions on the Council.
