Guam - The Health and Safety Task Force started up its inspections at the island's public schools again. Education Suruhanu Dominic Terlaje says many of the citations that were issued during inspections the last school year have yet to be corrected. The task force spent the day at Oceanview Middle School today to see if the campus met the 14 points of the Every Child is Entitled to An Adequate Education Act, but Terlaje says he found repeated violations.
"Sometimes I go out on my own and I'm seeing that some of the schools are having the same or similar issues and some of them are not being addressed timely. That's my biggest concern is just the timeliness of it because you know we expect issues to arise in schools I just hope that they can fix them," he told KUAM News.
The campus currently has a "B" rating. Terlaje says the task force will continue inspections at other island campuses over the next few weeks.
