Guam - Things are getting a little heated between the Guahan Academy Charter School board of trustees and the charter school's council as a petition for a writ of mandate was filed in the Superior Court of Guam on July 1. According to court documents the board is seeking legal action as the petition to revise the school's charter which was submitted in August 2013 has still not seen a public hearing violating the 45-day rule required by law to gather the necessary information needed to allow the council to make a decision. In addition to this the board is also seeking legal action to have the council submit the GACS budget for FY15 to the DOE superintendent according to court document the board submitted the budget in February.
