Guam - Classroom temperatures at one Yigo public school are expected to cool down.

DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez reports over 2,000 A/C units have been purchased for schools islandwide, but while they ship to Guam, temporary units will be installed at Simon Sanchez High School to cool off 20 classrooms plagued with heat at temps up to 85-degrees.  We should note, these classrooms don't have windows.

"We're going to install those it will be cool and we're going to have to make adjustments to the electrical system to deal with the temporary air conditioners but we'll replace them with the higher powered ones when they arrive on island," he said.

Meanwhile, contractors JMI Edison have filed a protest at the Guam OPA contesting the award of the A/C contract to winning bidder, J&B.

Fernandez says fortunately this protest doesn't mean DOE has to stop its work and will continue with implementing the temp units at Sanchez.
