The Guam Education Board along with the Independent Interscholastic Athletic Association of Guam (IIAAG) will meet tomorrow afternoon to discuss GDOE’s decision to take over the operation of high school sports which could take effect next month.

This controversy in local sports developed after Guam Education Board member James Lujan spearheaded a movement within GEB that was voted on unanimously in May of this year.

The vote was for GDOE to divorce from the IIAAG, which has governed local high school sports for two decades.

The new league is called the Interscholastic Sports Association, or ISA, as GDOE will call it.

Under the plan, GDOE will assume control of sports at the high school level starting in the third quarter, in January 2020.

However, the decision has raised eyebrows in certain quarters, including Adelup, as Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero urged the GEB to reconsider their stance.

Representatives from GDOE and the IIAAG will meet tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. to discuss the letter sent to GDOE asking it to reconsider its decision to take over high school sports.
