Guam - The Guam Education Policy Board can't hold a meeting until Governor Eddie Calvo appoints five members to the governing board. According to chairman Ron Ayuyu, there are lots of things that need to be discussed.

He told KUAM News, "We need to work on the calendar again and then we need to work on the budget. This is the budget cycle for 2012. So things are getting heavy for our schedule now. We just hope that the governor starts sending the listing to the legislature so we can know who he's going to be appointing."

Only four current members will stay: Ayuyu, Joe San Agustin, Rosie Tainatongo and Dr. Jose Cruz. According to Ayuyu, their terms will be up in 2012. There's been no word on who the governor plans on appointing to the Education Board.
