Guam - It was one and done for the Department of Education and General Services Agency which were scheduled to visit all 40 DOE schools this week to gauge for security needs.

This follows their visit to Jose Rios Middle School in Piti this morning.

According to DOE deputy superintendent Rob Malay, the two parties agreed to postpone the visits, as it just wasn't efficient.

Both have agreed to allow DOE to submit a list of high-risk areas and high priority areas for each school campus by the end of the week.

As we've been reporting, this is part of the Secure Our Schools Act that passed into law earlier this year. The legislation provides $1.28 million in funds for security systems for doe school years. Last school year alone, a total of 42 breakins were reported at DOE schools with damages close to $340,000.
