Guam - Renovations to the Untalan Middle School campus in Barrigada may be underway, but only for electrical upgrades, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics upgrades and roofing repairs. According to Governor Eddie Calvo's education advisor Vince Leon Guerrero its good news for the Home of the Wildcats as the extended deadline to obligate $60 million in ARRA trust money means the Barrigada school may receive additional funds for repairs.

"They asked for an additional, I believe it, was $3 million in order to replace the temporary classrooms so they're looking at a return in 2014, which is my recollection. And so we're counting on the department to tell us what their intended uses are," he said.

It was earlier this year the Department of Public Health shut down the school for 50 health and safety violations. Students and staff have been occupying the Coretech facility in Tiyan since January.
