Guam - It looks like another close call for the Department of Education to obligate the remainder of their American Recovery and Reinvestment Act trust funds.

As we previously reported, DOE obligated just over $59 million in their ARRA funds before their expiration last October. And this time, DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez says they still have $800,000 to spend by the end of the week.

Fernandez says these funds will be used for the Southern High School fire alarm project, renovations to the Jose Rios Middle School gym, and the remaining $100,000 to be used to buy smart boards and other collateral equipment for Untalan Middle School as they are anticipated to return to their Barrigada campus by next school year.
