Fernandez visits schools to assess needs

by Krystal Paco

Guam - DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez is visiting school campuses and taking notes.

He continued his tour of schools this morning at Simon Sanchez High, F.B. Leon Guerrero Middle, Machanaonao Elemntary, Finegayan Elementary, and Astumbo Elemtnary.

To date, he's visited 23 of the island's 40 public schools and remains confident all will be ready for the start of classes August 19.

He admits although DOE may address A/C repairs, they cannot move forward with a/c replacements until the contract gets approval.

He adds he's also seeing major improvements at all campuses thanks to the ARRA-funded roofing repairs and installation of fire alarm systems.

He continues his school visits next week to southern schools and George Washington High School.
