Calvo works on federal edu-funding

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - After meetings with U.S. Department of Education officials in the nation's capitol this week, Governor Eddie Calvo announces the federal agency has agreed in principle to Guam's request to reallocate approximately $60 million and upwards of $75 million from education stimulus funds to help the local government pay teachers, school support staff and other personnel costs.

By shifting the fund sources, DOE will have more time to complete necessary capital improvement projects. The Guam Legislature however must make adjustments to the budget in order for USDOE to give final approval.
