Guam - The Guam Education Board is scheduled to meet this Tuesday and the main focus of discussion will be the recommendations from the selection committee on the top nominees vying for the superintendent position. Search committee chairperson Dr. Paul Pineda confirmed the panel was still in the process of narrowing down the top three but they will be prepared to announce the candidates during Tuesday's board meeting. 

Department of Education Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood and Deputy Superintendent Arlene Unpingco's contracts expire this Friday. The board has already worked on extending finance deputy superintendent Taling Taitano's contract by another 18 months as she has been tapped to lead the transition committee.

Nine people are vying for the position - Jeanette Yamashita, Dr. Faye Untalan, Wil Castro, Vince Leon Guerrero, Begona Flores, Salvador Avilla, Elwin Quitano, Albert San Agustin and Michelle Mendiola.

The board is scheduled to meet on Tuesday morning at the DOE Conference Room in Hagatna.
