DOE unsure of summer school bus service

Posted: Updated:

Guam - It's still unknown if the Department of Education will have buses for the upcoming summer school session. DOE deputy superintendent of schools Arlene Unpingco says they are in the process of securing the buses from Department of Public Works bus operations.

At the same time last year the department had no buses for summer school after it racked up a $400,000 bill for transportation services for two prior years. Unpingco says the department's debt owed is also being worked out with DPW. She told KUAM News, "The superintendent and the director of Public Works is in communication in trying to address the transportation, so pretty much in summary for the transportation work is in progress in trying to secure the buses for summer school."

DOE needs 79 buses to transport students attending summer school, with high schools are not scheduled to have bus services. DOE officials also say F.Q. Sanchez will be combined with Merizo Elementary; GW High School will absorb Southern High students and Simon Sanchez will absorb JFK High students.

Summer school begins on June 6.
