254

Guam – DOE Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Underwood has transferred the principal of FB Leon Guerrero school to the central office while the investigation is underway into the handling of bullying reports.

On the K-57 Breakfast Show this morning, Dr. Underwood announced that Principal Ulric Marc has been temporarily assigned duties in the central office. The principal of Jose Rios Middle School, Erica Cruz, has been temporarily assigned to FBLG.

Her decision comes after 2 days of  often emotional testimony before the Legislature’s Education Committee on bullying in the schools.

DOE came under heavy criticism for failing to enforce current laws against bullying and failing to enforce its own policies on the bullying in the schools.
