Guam - The start of classes for the new John F. Kennedy High School has been pushed back again. According to DOE Interim Superintendent Taling Taitano the decision to delay the start of classes was made after a tour of the new campus Tuesday with the Guam Education Board, "They determined they needed more time in order to properly move in all equipment and adequately prepare the classrooms," stated Taitano.

The first day of classes for John F. Kennedy High School is now Monday, August 29.
Student orientation will now take place Thursday, August 25. Teacher orientation will be Friday, August 26. JFK will use five built-in make-up days from the School Year Calendar to off-set the delay; three in the First Semester and two in the Second Semester.
 
Meanwhile, contractor International Bridge Corporation expects to acquire occupancy permits for JFK this week.
