Bill looks to sever Guam Academy Charter School from GDOE
A pair of bills to revamp the Guam Academy Charter School were the main items on today's legislative agenda.
One measure empowers the school council to hold the institution accountable for meeting accreditation standards. Co-sponsor Sen. Amanda Shelton explained the intent.
"Bill 107-35LS highlights the responsibility of the Guam Academy Charter School Council to place academy charter school on probation or revoke a charter school's charter if such school fails to meet a minimum of candidacy status towards its accreditation," she said.
The other measure would completely separate the charter school from the education department. It establishes a new budgetary and organizational process and appropriates an annual budget independent of the Guam Department of Education.
