Desks, chair & roof repairs: DOE looks for funds

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Department of Education is looking for money to replace broken desks and chairs at Agueda Johnston, Simon Sanchez and Southern High School. The three campuses are awaiting re-inspection by Public Health but Deputy Superintendent Taling Taitano says DOE must first put out an invitation for bid for roof repairs. 

Taitano says they're hoping the IFB will be put out before the end of the week and once that's in place, they can satisfy the citations that were imposed by Public Health.

Meanwhile, repairs continue at Southern High where Port Authority electricians spent the weekend replacing light fixtures around the Santa Rita campus. Bids for gym repair are also under review, with Taitano saying, "Unfortunately, the IFB for the auditorium did not receive any bids so we're repackaging that and we're hoping by extending the deadline for the work to be completed that we'll get some interested contractors."

Taitano expects that once the IFB or purchase orders are in place, DOE will ask for re-inspections of the three campuses.
