Guam - While four schools were targeted by vandals earlier this week, assessments for high-risk areas at school sites comes to a close today as part of the Secure Our Schools Act.

DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez said, "We've been working with GPD and GSA and other partners to go to all of our schools and really give an assessment of where they think security needs to be installed. 1928 in terms of lighting, security cameras, motion detectors, and alarms once all of this is compiled, we'll give it to GSA so they can put out a bid."

The Secure Our Schools Act provides over one million dollars in funding for security up to seven years for the island's public schools.
