WASC's input needed on JFK equipment

Posted: Updated:

by Michele Catahay

Guam - The Department of Education is waiting to hear back from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges before deciding whether it wants to invest in new equipment for the temporary Tiyan campus. Last week, JFK High School principal Ken Chargualaf sent a letter to the Commission stating the Tiyan facility brings challenges because there aren't adequate resources available.

He further asked whether this issue would affect accreditation.

In the meantime, DOE legal counsel Fred Nishihara says the response is necessary in order to make amendments to this lease. He says since a JFK campus may be built in time for next school year, DOE doesn't want to invest in the equipment if students are just going to move out.

JFK still hasn't received an official response from WASC on the matter.
