Superintendent submitting FQ Sanchez budget

Guam - A work session was held to go over the numbers to run F.Q. Sanchez Elementary School. The Guam Education Board recently voted to keep the school open on the condition that the budget be revisited and scaled back to be in line with other public schools. While an Evergreen Solutions management audit recommended the school's closure because of the excessive cost per student, F.Q. Sanchez was given a $300,000 budget to work with. 

Education Board chair Francis Santos says if officials are unable to reduce the costs to operate the Merizo campus, the issue of whether to keep the school open will have to be revisited. "We will address that in the board meeting to see if that is something the school can work with in hopes of keeping the school open," he explained. KUAM News asked what if such was not possible, to which he replied, "Then I think the board will have to revisit the decision whether to close F.Q. Sanchez for the coming school year."  

Santos says the superintendent is prepared to submit a revised budget and make the determination on whether school officials will be able to operate within that for the coming school year.
