by Krystal Paco

Guam - After months of sitting idle, the Secure Our Schools Act of 2013 has garnered momentum.

Following a meeting hosted by committee chair on education Speaker Judi Won Pat on Thursday, Department of Education deputy superintendent Rob Malay tells KUAM News the agency looks forward to continued collaboration with partnering agencies to get security measures into the island's public schools.

Also present at yesterday's meeting were the General Services Agency, the Guam Police Department, the Guam International Airport Authority, and the Department of Corrections.

The measure provides over a million in funding for security up to seven years for the island's public schools.
