Abrupt change in Sanchez leadership perplexes students

by Krystal Paco

Guam - Looking for answers, the Simon Sanchez High School community rallied this afternoon at the gates of their Yigo school. With signs that read "We Love You Mrs. Perez" and "Simon Sanchez Is Incomplete Without Mrs. Perez" students and staff are questioning why their school principal Beth Perez was abruptly removed in the middle of the school year as the school prepares for an accreditation visit.

DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez tells KUAM a change was necessary for the goals he envisions for the school. "We'll be down at the school in the next day or school to talk to the faculty and talk to the student leaders to let them know the decision that was made and talk a little about the necessity for the change and where I want to see the school headed," he said.

Carla Masnayon, the principal from neighbor school F.B. Leon Guerrero Middle has taken Perez's place.

Perez has been moved to Untalan Middle School as an assistant principal.
