Guam - Interim superintendent of the Guam Department of Education Taling Taitano says officials are still trying to determine if the agency will have to reimburse the Judiciary for uniforms for the new school resource officers. During a conference call last week, Taitano says she believes the uniforms aren't covered.
"The gun was considered part of the uniform and that they don't normally pay for the uniform, and I thought that was how the conversation went, but USDOE is supposed to have their legal group look at it and get back to us," she explained.
The SROs are scheduled to begin their job at their respective high schools when students return to class on January 3.
