Guam - With a little over two weeks to go, so far no one has turned in an application for the superintendent job at DOE. Two people however picked up a packet. The position has been vacant since last year. The position pays $125,000 a year and applicants must have a master's degree in education, business, public administration or related field, five years experience in the field of educational leadership or management and must be of good moral character without any felony convictions.
Last year the GEB conducted a search and narrowed the applicants down to George Washington High School teacher Salvador Avilla and Governor Eddie Calvo's education liaison, Vince Leon Guerrero. After interviews and a vote, neither garnered enough support for the job. The deadline to submit an application is January 31.
