Guam - With Department of Education superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood stepping down from her post at the end of her contract this July, it seems the agency will also be faced with the task of finding new deputy superintendents. Only two remain on the current DOE management team.

Deputy Superintendent of Finance Taling Taitano and Deputy Superintendent of Schools Arlene Unpingco confirm their contract is up on July 22, as well. The pair says the new superintendent will select the new deputies.

While Taitano tells KUAM News she would stay if offered the job, Unpingco confirms after 30 years of service she is ready to retire.

In the meantime, applicants for the superintendent have until June 30 to submit their applications to the Guam Education Board.
