Guam - "Early to bed and early to rise" is the concept that hopes to be a temporary solution to the busing and road construction issues. Senator Judi Guthertz sent a letter to Guam Education Policy Board chairman Ron Ayuyu, suggesting that the island's public schools open at 6:30am so that parents may opt to bring their children early to avoid rush hour traffic.
Guthertz says the option would first have to be adopted by the GEPB and the superintendent of the Department of Education. She adds that this directive would only last through the duration of the ongoing road construction period and until busing issues are resolved. Guthertz has also estimated that the costs to open the gates early should be minimal.
