Guam - Sworn-in almost one month ago and were supposed to start work ten days ago. There's still no definitive date when the school resource officers that are assigned to the island's five public high schools will actually report for duty. According to DOE interim superintendent Taling Taitano, discussions between the Judiciary and her agency have been fruitful, saying, "We just wanted to make sure there were clear, measurable objectives in place. The court and the DOE staff have been meeting daily for the last few days. I think we're at a point where there's an agreement that everyone is happy with."

Although it's not clear why this wasn't taken care of earlier, the agreement will still need approval by the U.S. Department of Education. In the meantime Taitano could not say when exactly the SROs will start.
