Guam - Despite moving students out months ago, the Department of Mental Health has yet to begin repairing and renovating the Rays of Hope building in Tamuning. The agency had anticipated having the renovations completed before August, but KUAM News has confirmed that work hasn't even begun yet. A design contract was awarded over the summer and $250,000 in federal funding had been identified for the repairs.
Students meanwhile have been attending classes in a temporary home in Ordot, where two teachers were assigned as well as school aides.
Mental Health Director Wilfred Aflague wouldn't comment on the matter, saying he needs to discuss the matter with the Department of Public Works.
