Education board lacks quorum for meeting

Posted: Updated:

Guam - As quickly as it began, last night's Guam Education Board meeting was adjourned because it lacked quorum. Currently only four elected members sit on the board along with a student representative.

Although the governor's appointees attended the meeting they are barred from legally participating because they must be confirmed by the Guam Legislature first. The board was scheduled to discuss the Department of Education's $288 million budget for next fiscal year, as well as select its new chairman and vice-chair.

The budget by law must be submitted to the legislature by the end of the month.
