Guam - It's about to cool off at DOE schools islandwide who will finally come into compliance with the Every Child is Entitled to An Adequate Public Education Act.

As DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez reported to Guam Education Board members earlier this week, July's order of over 2,100 new air conditioning units have started arriving with installations set for completion by the end of January.

As we've been reporting, from Southern High in Santa Rita to Yigo's Simon Sanchez High School, classrooms islandwide have been plagued with broken A/C units resulting in unbearable temperatures.

According to the mandate, classrooms must be either air conditioned or properly ventilated with sensible temperatures no greater than 78 degrees.
