Guam - The Department of Education held its biweekly conference call with officials from the USDOE and the third-party fiduciary agent, Alvarez and Marsal. DOE Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood says she was assured that everything is on track in getting the agent in place.
She adds that they also received word that the millions of dollars in federal funding will be available soon, telling KUAM News, "They really have commented on how well the process has been going and that a lot of the DOE personnel have been very cooperative, so we are looking forward to having access to the funds soon."
The funds will push forward hundreds of DOE projects that will be funded by $75,000,000 in American Reinvestment and Recovery Act money.
