Guam - As a progress report on whatever happened to a public law to step up security at our island's public schools, it has been over one year now since the Secure Our Schools Act was signed into law.

According to DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez, the issue remains at the General Services Agency. "We don't yet have confirmation from GSA on when that actually that IFB will be put out. But we've been pushing hard and working with Speaker [Judi] Won Pat to see if possible that we can begin to install security equipment in the summer so that we're ready to go for the coming school year," he explained.

The Secure Our Schools Act was signed into law in April 2013. It provides $1.2 million for security for up to seven years for all of the island's public schools.
