Guam – With the decision to end school early for the eight Guam Department of Education schools that will be housing incoming Fest Pac delegates, GDOE can now focus on preparing the campuses.

 

GDOE Superintendent Jon Fernandez says they’re finalizing their plans to mobilize staff, resources and volunteers in order to properly prepare the schools for housing the incoming delegates. According to Fernandez, they have May 17, 18 and 19 to do all the hard work, which means moving out collateral equipment such as desks, chairs and drawers and then receiving equipment such as beddings before the first of the delegates arrive on May 20. The work doesn’t end there. Fernandez explains, after transitioning the classrooms, they still have to iron out plans for housing operations, which staff will man the schools in a 24/7 schedule and transportation schedules.

Fernandez says, “It was a lot of work but it’s important that we clarify what time frame we’re going to be working within. I’m confident we’re going to do this successfully working with our volunteers, Fest Pac committee, and within the DOE community and staff. I told our deputies and management at central offices to be prepared to help move if we need you but we’ll work with the school administrators to gage what they’ll be able to do to make that transition successfully.”
