Guam - The security of our public schools sits in the hands of the General Service Agency. As we reported public law allows for the procurement of security cameras for the island's public schools.

DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez said, "My understanding is that GSA is just reviewing the IFB to be put out on the street for vendors to look at and bid we gave our input on Monday of this week gave our input in regard to the draft that was out there."

Fernandez says he made sure the proposal was shared with the schools to ensure it met DOE expectations and specifications. He says that the ideal time to address the security needs is as they get ready for the new school year. He is hopeful a bid will be awarded by the summer. The bid is requesting for security cameras, alarms and monitoring services. He adds that protecting our schools is more then just equipment instead it is partnering with GPD and the community to keep a watchful eye on school campuses.
