Guam - The Guam Academy of Charter Schools Council will be meeting this evening during a work session to review two proposals submitted back in August. According to chairperson Rosa Salas Palomo, Rand Coffman submitted an application to create the Atdao Charter School, while Peter Caso submitted a proposal to create the blue ocean academy charter school.

"Today's work session is to review these for the first time and then look at the timeline that has been outlined by law," Palomo said.  "And we will do our very best as a council to meet the time lines that have been established. We, the Council and I as chair, have committed ourselves to doing that with any application that comes in."

The Council plans on having public hearings for both applications later this month.
