Council approves renewal of Guahan Academy's charter

Posted: Jun 14, 2018 6:25 PM Updated:

The council votes in favor of Guahan Academy Charter School's renewal. Three Council Members Cel Babuata, Frankie Toves, and Dr. Walter voted for renewal. While, Council member Yuka Oguma did not vote in favor. Councilwoman Amanda Blas sat out of the vote.

Though GACS was unable to meet the requirement of accreditation in 5 years, the Council made a decision based on "majority rule". The approval of the Council renews the Charter for another 5 years. An amendment was added to create two new committees to address accreditation, led by Cel Babuata and finance, headed by Frankie Toves.

Currently GACS has yet to hear back about a letter of appeal they sent to WASC, regarding a denial of candidacy for accreditation.

The Council hopes to work with school officials to address deficiencies, including finding a new campus for GACs middle school after a letter of eviction due to nonpayment earlier this year.
