Guam – The U.S. Department of Education has established 10 regional advisory committees to collect information on the educational needs across the country. Guam is part of region 10 along with Hawaii, American Samoa, and the CNMI.

Representing the territory is Guam Community college president Mary Okada and Guam parent information resource center director Pauline Camacho. The committees will be working together to develop a report that will recommend ways to effectively address educational needs, which will be presented to U.S. education secretary Arne Duncan by August 1.

The committees will also establish priorities for the upcoming comprehensive centers program grant competition in 2012, which provides technical assistance designed to help build the capacity of states to support their districts and schools in increasing student achievement.
