Guam - No word on Bill 309 which would appropriate a portion of Section 30 revenues or $10 million to expand George Washington High School. Once the expansion is done at GW no students would be transferred into the Tiyan facilities, no tax credits would be authorized to construct a new DOE gym, DOE office, DOE warehouses or mezzanines within the Tiyan facilities in FY14 and beyond.  As we reported the bill has raised concerns by DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez DOE and the Guam Education Board. "And so when we hear about proposals to undue that planning and undue that direction we get very concerned I think the board really expressed their frustration that the bill would propose putting GW up at 2,700 students again and that's something we were trying to cure," he said.

He says even though DOE wants to fix their facilities and needs additional resources this particular bill is not something they could sign off on he adds that their job is to serve students and plan ahead and the department needs to have consistent policy direction that will not reverse the hard work that has been done.
