Guam - Untalan Middle School faculty and staff were given the opportunity to walk through the Tiyan facility for the first time this afternoon. Principal Jim Reyes says they were able to view classrooms and make recommendations on the facility.

The school has since taken a proactive approach on plans while they wait on the Guam Education Board's decision. "At least by taking these proactive steps, we are sort of preparing our self should they say, 'Let's go!' and we're already steps ahead, or if they say, 'Sorry, we're not going to move at this time', we still have a plan in place. And at least our faculty has already seen the facility and can start even better planning from there," Reyes said.

He adds classrooms have since been assigned. He says the move is looking at a total of nine calendar days, which includes missing five instructional days. He is looking at a few days in Spring Break and some built-in toward the end of the school year to make them up. A Parent Teacher Association meeting will be held next Thursday evening in order to share more information from that morning's GEB meeting and other plans for the move.
