Guam - The more than 50 air conditioning units that are down at George Washington High School didn't have an impact on today's inspection by the Health and Safety Task Force. The Mangilao campus managed to get an "A" rating from the Department of Public Health.
According to Department of Education facilities and maintenance manager Billy Cruz, at least one air conditioning unit works in every classroom and classrooms fell within relative humidity of 78-84 degrees. "They found that the temperature in the classrooms met the requirements," said Cruz, "So we are still working on some air conditioners that need to be replaced. We'll be working on that sometime next month 024226 we just received purchase orders from the Supply Management Office yesterday for the replacement of air conditioners. So we worked with the contractor today to get them out as soon as possible."
The school was issued six demerits were for overgrown vegetation, stained walls, ceilings and floors, cracks in the floor, leaks in the ceiling, and peeling paint.
