Guam - In hopes to have a larger pool of candidates to choose from, the Guam Education Board has extended the application process for the Department of Education superintendent position. Applications were originally due on Monday but the deadline has been extended to Thursday, June 30 to maximize the opportunity for candidates to submit an application.
Search committee chair Dr. Paul Pineda says the extension is warranted given the importance of this position to the education and welfare of DOE's 31,000 students. The announcement is also being advertised in states like Washington, California and Hawaii.
KUAM News meanwhile has confirmed that Governor's Education Liaison Vince Leon Guerrero, will be submitting his application in the coming weeks. Leon Guerrero confirms he is finalizing his packet to submit to the Education Board.
