Charter school calls emergency meeting for parents

Guam - An emergency meeting has been called tonight for parents and guardians of students attending the Guahan Academy Charter School.

Although school officials have yet to return our calls, the Governor's Office confirms that the charter school was recently served an eviction notice from Core Tech International as they've been operating on the space without a lease.

According to Governor Eddie Calvo's deputy press secretary Phil Leon Guerrero, Acting Governor Ray Tenorio met with the school's PTO this morning to discuss the matter.

Leon Guerrero notes that prior to opening, the charter school asked the governor to assist with securing a school location, which resulted in a brokering a deal to use Tiyan through the charity of Core Tech. He adds that the charter school will be put into the lease agreement for Tiyan facilities under GovGuam, which is currently under review at the AG's Office.

The Administration remains optimistic that it will be finalized in time to avoid any disruption to charter school operations.

The emergency meeting for parents starts at the school's cafeteria at 7 p.m.
