Guam - With the Department of Education forced to deal with a reduction in its budget for the next fiscal year, the Guam Education Policy Board wants to know whether programs and operations will be affected. A meeting will be held tomorrow to discuss these impacts.

Board chairman Ron Ayuyu said, "They're giving me some information that might have an impact with decreasing our funding. That's another issue that I've asked the superintendent as of yesterday to give us an update on how much our shortfall will be."

DOE may see a reduction of $12.5 million for the next fiscal year compared to the current one. Officials have said there may be issues with obtaining more federal dollars if the agency cannot maintain certain funding levels.

The meeting takes place tomorrow at the DOE Conference Room in Hagatna.
