by Krystal Paco
Guam - George Washington High School is likely to go into double-session for the upcoming school year in order for 17 classrooms to get science technology engineering and mathematics (STEM), renovations underway.
DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez confirms he met with governor's education advisor Vince Leon Guerrero, the Department of Public Works, and GW administration today. Together they are working to secure funding.
Fernandez says a notice to proceed is imminent, telling KUAM News, "Right now, based on the information I have at this point we'll be trying to manage a double-session - what I've asked is that our GW team bring together the data of the number of students that are going to require transportation. So these are the 9th graders and based on those numbers figure out what the costs will be or the resources need to run that double-session. We're committed to identifying resources within our current funding to address that we just need to come to an exact number."
Fernandez says all are committed to getting the STEM renovations completed as soon as possible so students may benefit from them this school year.
