Guam - The Department of Education is hoping to receive additional federal dollars to cover salaries at the school sites. According to Deputy Superintendent of Finance Taling Taitano, DOE sent a letter to Governor Felix Camacho, suggesting he put in an application for the Education Jobs Funds Program.

DOE could receive $20 million from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act grants to cover not only salaries for support staff, but to develop programs and tutorials for students. Taitano says these funds could also help DOE stay afloat until the next fiscal year.

The largest agency in the Government of Guam has said it could be short of funds by September.
