PNC’s Althea Engman has the details on this story
With a deadline of July 15th to turn in an application and a 6-month time frame for finding a superintendent, concerns have been raised by a Guam Education Board member, Robert Crisostomo, on an interim superintendent as part of the timeline while the selection process is still ongoing.
In a meeting last week, the Guam Department of Education went over a timeline created for the purpose of finding a new Superintendent which includes job advertisements, screening, an interview process, and more followed by a discussion of the requirements a candidate must meet in order to be considered for the position, but nothing about interim personnel to take over after the Superintendents last day set for July 15th
Crisostomo hopes to have some type of continuation of effort in the operation especially since the upcoming school year is right around the corner.
During the meeting, Maria Gutierrez, the chair of GEB made it clear that this meeting and this group were made to discuss the timeline of finding a superintendent and not for personnel issues.
Mary Okada, Vice Chairwoman of GEB, added that the request made by Crisostomo will be reflected in the minutes and will be up for discussion during the board’s executive session under personnel matters.
