Guam - The Guam Education Board may have approved Marcial Sablan Elementary School's request to extend their school day by 30 minutes, but that may not be possible due to bussing. According to Department of Education deputy superintendent Rob Malay, initial feedback from the Department of Public Works said the arrangement was feasible if students at Harry S. Truman Elementary School in Santa Rita started and released students at an earlier time.

Because that isn't possible, Malay says Marcial Sablan cannot have their extended school day to provide for additional instructional time.
