Guam - DOE's newest campus not only remains unfinished, but it's running up a major power bill. According to JFK High School assistant principal Hannah Gutierrez, the school's power bill has tripled since their move from the interim Tiyan campus to Upper Tumon. Once again, they're calling on International Bridge Corporation to do something about it.

"While I was here over the weekend the units were still running at 4:30," Gutierrez said. "I don't know if IBC is aware on how bad the power bill is in setting the timer, because we don't know how to set it so we've asked for their assistance." She added, "What we've noticed is that the regular lights, the exterior lights are on even when it's eight, nine o'clock and I will have to call the IBC personnel to have them shut off, but that's something that we already agreed that we hope they will enforce and assist us in keeping down the power bill."

Every class is equipped with six-ton air conditioning units. Gutierrez hopes to have A/C timers set to start up before students arrive at 7am. And shut off after student dismissal at 1:30pm.
