Guam – The Guam Department of Education Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Underwood will give her annual State of the Education Address at Southern High School on Friday night at 6pm.


Underwood says she will talk about the recent Standard Achievement Test (SAT 10) scores and results that were recently released last weekend (Saturday, October 16, 2010). Her speech will also focus on the recent incline of high school students who graduated last year and the decline of high school drop outs.

These funds will be used to help students perform better on next years SAT 10 scores, to upgrade technology in the schools and for school improvements.
