Tri-board set to meet Thursday

by Krystal Paco

Guam - The University of Guam board of regents, the Guam Community College board of trustees, and the Guam Educational Board are gearing up to meet this week for a tri-board meeting.

GEB chair Dr. Jose Cruz says the meeting will allow the three to focus on the Department of Education's recent implementation of the common core state standards which focuses heavily on curriculum to prepare students for careers or college.

"I know GCC is probably more advanced in their focus, but we're trying to learn from each other on how to actually support each other in this work in having the students - we take them when they're young and GCC and UOG take them when they're adolescents and young adults," he said.

Cruz says the tri-board is not a new concept, but notes that because it's unfunded, there is no executive director.

The meet is slated for Thursday, January 9 at the UOG RFK Library AV Room 1 at 5:30 p.m.
