Guam - The Department of Education superintendent has formulated an Education Response Team made up of a couple of other principals to combat the issues at F.B. Leon Guerrero Middle School. Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood says Jose Rios Middle School principal Erica Cruz will remain at the Yigo campus temporarily until an investigation is complete.

Former FBLG principal Ulric Mark and assistant principal Milaflor Quitugua remain at the Central Office under the Curriculum and Instruction Division.

In the meantime, the superintendent says the response team is currently making assessments on campus.  "I am confident that as they speak with the teachers, along with the support staff and the students and also make assessments for the types of data that are available, that we can have an overall picture of what our strengths and weaknesses are and take the corrective action we need to make," she said.

The new response team includes Dexter Fullo from Benavente Middle, Ken Denusta from Okkodo High and Deputy Superintendent Arlene Unpingco.
