Guam - The Guam Academy Charter School Council discussed the application for a second charter school under the Blue Ocean Academy. The Academy hoped to customize public education by delivering dynamic educational programs in the convenience of the students' homes. However, a response from Assistant Attorney General Fred Nishihara stated the application does not meet the provisions of the charter school law.
"That specific section was that it cannot be a home-based charter school and so he says that we have no other recourse but to disapprove the application," he said.
Council chairperson Rosa Salas Palomo will inform the Academy of the application being denied. She will also be sending a letter to the charter school law author, Speaker Judi Won Pat, to review the law and determine if home schooling could be included.
