The head of GDOE is currently in the Nation's capital. Superintendent John Fernandez is meeting with federal officials to discuss the education department's high-risk designation. Discussions will focus on how GDOE can eventually move off of high-risk and remove the special conditions associated with the status. These conditions include having to pay $3 million annually for a third party fiduciary agent. Fernandez is also expected to meet with the US DOE program office regarding consolidated grant funding and an upcoming visit to Guam this September, as well as, the Federal Property division to discuss 80 acres of property in Yigo they hope to retain for educational purposes.
