Calvo meets GEB, principals; talks reorg

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The Calvo Administration's plans for reorganization within the Government of Guam were the focus of discussions between the governor, the Guam Education Board and school principals this afternoon. Interim Department of Education Superintendent Taling Taitano says while there are no specific plans about reorganizing the agency, suggestions were made about maximizing existing resources while meeting the mission to support and educate students.

"We had a separate meeting for education and we were trying to put down some ideas about what we can do to work together and be productive," she said. "So for instance, could our nurses perhaps help Public Health in their mission? A lot of it has to do with sharing of resources."

Governor Eddie Calvo stressed during today's meeting that Adelup will honor the $216 million budget that's been adopted and despite the cuts being made elsewhere in the government, education remains a top priority.  The governor also solicited input from principals on how to make the school system more efficient and productive.
