Federal education officials coming to Guam

Posted: Updated:

Officials from the United States Department of Education programs office will be visiting Guam in the next few months. Superintendent Jon Fernandez said the office monitors the island's $28 million in consolidated grant funding.

"We believe they'll be able to come out in September to do programmatic monitoring so that will be, this will be the staff that basically reviews our consolidated grant investments and approves that application every year so that's an important piece of the puzzle," he said.

While Guam's consolidated grant funding increased by $2 million this year, it is expected to drop by roughly $8 million if the president's current budget is approved. This has forced Guam DOE to look into possible adjustments.

A needs assessment survey was conducted in May with Fernandez noting the results will help guide the department's future use of federal funds.
