Underwood: Islanders will remain at Tiyan

Guam - Department of Education Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood says the JFK High School community will be housed at the interim campus in Tiyan for next school year. She says the contract needs a little tweaking, but it's now with Adelup.

DOE had requested that science labs be renovated and that canopies be set up so that when it rains, students won't get wet. In addition, DOE still needs to come up with money to fund Internet connectivity.  "My understanding is that the contract is with the Governor's Office. We may need to go to the Legislature if additional costs aren't covered by the previous contract but other than that, I've been assured that our students will have an interim campus," Underwood told KUAM News.

While no work has been done and a contract has yet to be signed, she says she's been assured by DOE's legal counsel that the campus will be ready for students by August 10.
