Guam - The Guam Education Board will spend the week addressing attendance areas all this in line with the anticipated opening of a central high school at the CoreTech buildings in Tiyan next school year.

DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez said, "We've met with mayors. We've met with DPW. Brought in all the high school principals to talk about the attendance areas and changes that need to be made to accommodate the Okkodo expansion and the new central high school. The board will review it this Friday and hopefully at the special meeting we'll be able to have a final approval by the board to the villages and present the information to parents."

Fernandez says the board will also have to address seniors and students dually enrolled at the University of Guam or Guam Community College.

Ultimately, he says the central high school will have the most impact on students at GW and John F. Kennedy High School. To date, both campuses have 2,700 students.

The board is set for a special meeting on January 29 at the Agana Heights Elementary School cafeteria.
