GDOE is required to inform all interested public and private elementary and secondary schools of their intent to consolidate grant funds by holding a training workshop.

Guam – The Guam Department of Education Federal Programs Division held a two day training workshop to advise and guide stakeholders on the activities they’re going to be applying for in the FY2016 U.S. DOE Grant Funds.

 

According to a release, GDOE is required to inform all interested public and private elementary and secondary schools of their intent to consolidate grant funds by holding a training workshop. Some of the projects funded by the consolidated grant include the After School Aspire Program, the night school also called Eskuelan Puengi, summer school, services to the Department of Youth Affairs and Sanctuary, and even professional development for teachers.

 
GDOE State Program Officer Dina Lorenzo says, “The ones who would benefit from this is really the students because whatever supplemental funding is provided to them based on the different activities that are approved in each of the project applications, then it’ll be applied by teacher in the classrooms and it’ll definitely benefit our students.”
 
GDOE Acting Federal Programs Administrator Rachel Duenas explains, “One of the major ones we’re looking at to is outfitting our school with technology equipment so we can help students move forward towards innovate practices.”
 
The two-day consultative workshop was held at the Westin Resort Guam.
