Underwood ‘shocked’ at reprimand against her

Guam - While a letter of reprimand has been drafted by the Guam Education Policy Board to Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood, the superintendent said she's quite shocked with the board's decision to take action against her.  "That came as a surprise me primarily because I thought I had answered all the questions they had asked me when it comes to concerns. But at this point, my concern is really to ensure that FBLG and the other schools are implementing the prevention of bullying policies and so that's my primary concern right now," she told KUAM News.

After the meeting last week, board member Joe San Agustin said he was going to rescind his vote during the next meeting on December 29. In the meantime, the board went to the Attorney General's Office to look at the reprimand letter to determine if it complies with mandates.
