Guam - Aside from the superintendent, Guam Education Board chairperson Ron Ayuyu would like to see the governor's appointees to the board confirmed as soon as possible. The Department of Education's budget must be adopted and turned into the Guam Legislature by next week.

"If it doesn't," the chairman warned, "maybe the superintendent needs to submit a budget and then when the new board that's appointed and gets confirmed, that's when we'll look at it and make some changes and resubmit, but I'm hoping the legislature will take action and the board members will start rolling on the 2012 budget."

DOE is requesting $288 million for next fiscal year - a significant increase from the current fiscal year. Ayuyu says doe should seriously consider implementing the findings of an audit conducted by evergreen solutions several years ago.

Meanwhile, tomorrow's board meeting is scheduled for six pm in the DOE Conference Room in Hagatna.
