GEB extends superintendent deadline

Guam - Although Vince Leon Guerrero wasn't at today's Guam Education Board meeting, he certainly made the agenda. While the chairman of the Governor's Education Task Force was at Untalan Middle School, during this morning's Guam Education Board meeting at JFK High School in Upper Tumon, GEB member Joe San Agustin made a motion for Leon Guerrero to serve as interim superintendent.

The motion, however, didn't get enough support due to a possible conflict because he was a former candidate for superintendent. Why does that even matter? During this morning's meeting the board unanimously voted to extend the deadline to apply for the superintendent job until March 16.

The board also decided to contact all previous applicants to see if they would like to reapply, and in this case Leon Guerrero would be one of those that would be contacted.

Leon Guerrero along with Salvador Avilla were the final two candidates for the superintendent in the first go round but neither managed to get enough votes needed to be hired. In this latest go around, six people had applied, but only one person fully completed the application.

What will be different in this third go around is the board agreed to only release the names of candidates to the Superintendent Search Committee and not to the public.

The next Guam Education Board meeting is scheduled for February 29 at Machanaonao Elementary School.
