Guam - Untalan Middle School's move to the CoreTech facility in Tiyan has officially begun. UMS administrative staff began moving desks and cafeteria and kitchen equipment from the Barrigada campus to Tiyan today.
Department of Education deputy superintendent Robert Malay says volunteers are needed daily to assist in the move, noting, "The goal is to try to get all the collateral equipment into the first floor rooms of all the buildings that Untalan is occupying. If we can get the first floor knocked out before Saturday the job on the weekend will be that much smaller, and the resumption of returning to class for the students at Untalan will happen that much quicker."
CoreTech will repair more than 400 desks that were deemed unusable until the new collateral equipment arrives in the next six to eight weeks. The Tiyan facility was also outfitted with an operational intercom system and Mi-Fi units have been provided for Internet access. Additionally, the bus schedule has been set for students who originally walked to the Barrigada campus.
For those still looking to volunteer, you are advised to meet at the Barrigada campus at 7:30 in the morning. For more information contact Andy Leon Guerrero at 888-4127.
