Guam - Guam Education Policy Board chairman Ron Ayuyu says the decision to reprimand superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood still stands. The board needed a vote of five for the action to take place, but member Joe San Agustin changed his mind on Tuesday night.
For now, Ayuyu says the board will have to wait and see what will happen next. "The letter has been drafted. It's going to David Highsmith. Rosie Tainatongo is going to see if she can meet with the attorney at the AG's Office to look at the letter to see if it complies with the mandate and comply with what was discussed during executive session for the two meetings we had," he said.
In the meantime, the next board meeting is scheduled for December 29, where San Agustin plans on rescinding the vote to reprimand the superintendent.
