Closed-door meeting for GEPB

Posted: Updated:

by Michele Catahay

Guam - The Guam Education Policy Board has decided to hold a special meeting in a week's time to talk about personnel matters during executive session. Instead of discussing what was on tonight's agenda, the board went directly into the private session and remained there for about three and a half hours. During that time board members met with the superintendent of public education, Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood, questioning her on varies issues.

The board did not take any actions tonight.  All this stems from issues brought up during an oversight hearing at the Guam Legislature within the last couple of days on the topic of campus bullying and student harassment.

Neither GEPB chairman Ron Ayuyu nor the superintendent were at liberty to discuss what was said behind closed doors, and could not share what issues were discussed.

The meeting will be on December 1 at 6pm downtown.
