Guam - Come School Year 2014-2015, all public high school students may be affected by the anticipated opening of a new central high at the CoreTech building in Tiyan.

At this morning's "table talks" conversations, Senator Aline Yamashita says acting DOE superintendent Taling Taitano and deputy Erica Cruz provided her with updates.

"They'll be taking pockets of people and putting them in different places. The numbers - GW will go from 2,643 to 1,700 students. JFK will go from 2,700 students to 2,000. Okkodo will go from 1,473 kids to 1,500 for a little bit of an increase. Sanchez will be a little bit of an increase 1,800 to 1,900. Southern High will remain at 1,400. And Central High they're looking at having 1,400 kids," she said.

The Guam Community College is also jumping on the planning process as they're concerned they may not be able to provide the same programs at the Central High as they do at GW because GW students are able to walk to the GCC campus in Mangilao for the vocational classes.
