Guam - The start of the new school year has been pushed back yet again, as several members of the board, Department of Education Interim Superintendent Taling Taitano, and the Guam Federation of Teachers met today to discuss the new dates for the school year.  Education Board chairman Francis Santos tells KUAM News the delays in the cafeterias contributed to the decision of pushing back the start of the school year by another week. 

This means teachers will report to schools for orientation on Friday, August 19, while students will begin school on Monday, August 22. Santos confirms this includes John F. Kennedy High School students. 

DOE says there will be no lapse in pay for teachers and Christmas Break will begin on December 19, with school resuming January 3.
