Guam - The Guam Education Board is set to meet next Friday to discuss the ongoing Department of Education superintendent search. Six hopefuls may have submitted applications, but only one submission has been confirmed to be complete while four are missing documents, and one may not have met the deadline on January 31.
Search committee chair Dr. Paul Pineda says the board may consider extending the deadline to the end of April because the current pool of applicants is too small. The six applicants were Jon Fernandez, Dr. Tupeni Lebaivalu Baba, Dr. Antoinette Laguana Morta, Michelle Mendiola, Elwin C. Quitano, and David Leon Guerrero Shimizu. The meeting is set to begin at 8:30am.
The meeting is scheduled for February 17 at the John F. Kennedy High School Media Center in Upper Tumon at 8:30am.
