Guam - With a new central high anticipated to open doors at the CoreTech facility in Tiyan come next school year, Adelup is hoping stakeholders of the new school will speak up on the need for the construction of a school gymnasium.

Governor Eddie Calvo signed a revised purchase agreement for the property and existing CoreTech buildings in Tiyan but provisions including the construction of a new gym and new DOE Central Headquarters were omitted due to criticisms from one lawmaker threatening legal action and developers questioning the hefty pricetag.

Governor Eddie Calvo's education advisor Vince Leon Guerrero said, "We've only got this school year to prepare for an opening of a new high school any threats to derail this time table, will jeopardize and keep our students at GW in very, very unsafe and overcrowded conditions so we're calling on those who would be most adversely affected to please let those people that are standing in the way of an appropriate high school get the message that we need to get this done once and for all."

Leon Guerrero says without a school gym, the Tiyan central high will be a second-rate facility.
