Earlier education board meeting voided
Guam - It has been determined that a December 7 meeting scheduled by the Guam Education Policy Board has been determined null and void. During a scheduled meeting tonight, Assistant Attorney General David Highsmith said that meeting earlier this month did not meet requirements set forth in the Open Government Law and that a notice for that meeting wasn't published on time.
He says it is required for a meeting to be announced five working days before.
During the December 7 meeting, the board voted to reprimand the Department of Education superintendent. Highsmith says because that meeting was null and void, he says any action taken that night will not be counted. Five board members initially voted to take action against Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood.
Shortly after that meeting, member Joe San Agustin wanted to rescind his vote.
