Guam - The Guam Education Policy Board moved their special meeting scheduled for this Friday to Monday, October 18. The board is unsure whether the Department of Education's $183 million budget is enough to cover the additional costs for the government's health insurance plan.
While the department doesn't think it has enough money in the current fiscal year budget, DOE will hold several hearings to discuss the Fiscal Year 2012 budget. The Luchan district meeting is scheduled for October 19 at C.L. Taitano Elementary School. The Kattan region meeting will be held on October 20 at Ordot-Chalan Pago Elementary School. The Lagu region's meeting will be October 21 at Astumbo Middle School, while the Haya region meeting will be held on October 25 at Southern High School.
All of the budget hearings begin at 6pm.
