Guam - The ribbon-cutting for the new John F. Kennedy High School campus has been pushed back yet again. JFK Principal Ken Chargualaf says because International Bridge Corporation has yet to obtain the necessary final occupancy permits, officials haven't been able to prepare the campus for students' first day of school on the 22nd.

"We are quite unready and to such time again until those occupancy permits are issued, we will not be able to really have a complete plan," he said.

IBC officials have not returned numerous phone calls for comment on the status of their efforts to obtain the final occupancy permit, but Public Health has confirmed that they and other regulatory agencies are scheduled to do an inspection on Wednesday afternoon. 

Meanwhile, Chargualaf says the ribbon-cutting is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, August 20 at 2:30 in the afternoon.
