Guam - Public high school students can look forward to a new instructional schedule next school year. According to Guam Education Board member Barry Mead, the board adopted a schedule that offers eight classes, instead of the current six.

"It's going to allow for us to offer remedial math classes or basic math classes to high school students who need it and in the 9th Grade Academy as well as overall, it's going to allow for the inclusion of the public law that mandated another Chamorro class," said Mead. "It's going to allow for Southern High to pilot the Johns Hopkins program and what it's going to allow for is going to give the students the term 'wiggle room', because we have 24 credits and you only get 24 classes."

Mead says the schedule will also allow students the opportunity to take more elective classes as well as schools to implement college career readiness programs.
