Guam - When students and faculty to return to classes in the fall they’ll see some leadership changes.  According to DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez while there will be some changes at the principal level, the majority of the changes are with assistant principals.  He adds that last year, he shifted a substantial number of principals but this year, they are working on building stronger teams at each school, particularly at the middle and high schools. Fernandez adding it's taken some time to get a better feel for the strengths and weaknesses of school leaders, and believes the decisions he’s made will improve how DOE is serving its students. This year, Fernandez has reassigned seven (7) school principals, compared to the twenty (20) he reassigned last year. Additionally, fifteen (15) assistant principals will have a new school assignment. A total of nineteen schools will see the changes when the school year opens on August 18th.
