Guam - A contract still hasn't been awarded for two separate anti-bullying programs under the Department of Education.  While it's been over six months since requests for proposal were first announced, Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood says they're still working on having a contract signed by both the attorney general and the governor.

"Those two - the contract development is actually in their final stage if they're not already ready to go to the attorney general. But those are part of what we're trying to take advantage of," she explained.

These programs will be funded under the stimulus grants for professional development. It will also help obtain software to monitor behavior of students and to collect data relative to bullying.
