Allegations of $8,000 in non-appropriated funds going missing at the Guam Department of Education has led senator Joe San Agustin to call for a round table meeting later this month.

Senator Joe San Agustin said, "The past month we were concentrating on getting the funding right for DOE, and then lo and behold I get a text saying there's reason to believe that there could be some funds that may be missing within the student body, non-appropriated funds within DOE.

San Agustin said DOE has confirmed it is looking into the matter. He is hoping a round table scheduled for July 20th will reveal the agency's existing processes and possible improvements that can be made to its handling of non-appropriated funds.
