Guam - Time is up for those interested in submitting an application to the Department of Education's superintendent position. The Guam Education Board has quite a few applications to review. A total of ten people submitted an application for the superintendent job.

Selection Committee chairman Paul Pineda says the committee will be meeting next week Wednesday to pick the top three candidates, and to the board to make their pick. "The board itself we are in agreement of pretty much what we want, we are combining right now what the kind of questions that we are going to have but really we are pretty unified in our search," he said.

DOE Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Underwood has agreed to stay on board after her contract expires on July 22 until the GEB hires her replacement. Pineda says the transition committee will also be working with the outgoing and incoming management team to ensure a smooth transition.
