School officials to discuss possible Tiyan move

Posted: Updated:

Guam - KUAM News has confirmed that a meeting will be held on Friday with Untalan Middle School officials to discuss a possible move to CoreTech's Tiyan facility, which was previously used for the interim John F. Kennedy High School.  Untalan Middle, in Barrigada, is one of the oldest campuses on the island.  The school has dealt with leaky ceilings and flooding. 

Officials are going to discuss the possibility of moving to the Tiyan facility and whether moving in would be possible during Christmas Break.  The move, however, would only be temporary until the campus is rebuilt or renovated. 

We're told that school officials are going to discuss logistics.  As we reported the contract with CoreTech remains in effect, despite a termination letter sent by Governor Eddie Calvo back in June. 

Government officials told KUAM News on Wednesday that they are reviewing options of purchasing the property from CoreTech or continuing with the lease that is paid through tax credits. CoreTech has already said that they are willing to work with the Department of Education and the government of Guam to get the facility ready as soon as possible to meet their needs. 

The meeting is scheduled for 9:30 Friday morning at Untalan Middle School.
