Guam - The Department Education has decided to scrap plans to use the interim JFK High School in Tiyan as an alternate middle and high school. DOE and the Guam Education Board were exploring the use of the Tiyan campus to help alleviate overcrowding, but those are off the table after a meeting last week with the board, senators and Adelup officials revealed the plan would cost more than $5 million.

DOE Deputy Superintendent Taling Taitano said, "It was decided that given the current financial situation that it would not be possible to go forward. DOE just doesn't have the money in its current budget to afford something like that."

In the meantime, DOE will be meeting with charter school officials this week to discuss their budget and decide if they may be using the Tiyan facility that GovGuam has a ten-year lease on.
