Speaker Judi Won Pat says the Core-Tech Facility in Tiyan, which currently houses Untalan Middle School, has some underutilized space that could be offered to the Charter school.
“When JFK first moved in there they went there with a school population of over 2,000 so that means you have a facility there for 2,000 students in essence. Now Untalan Middle School is not at a thousand so therefore that leads me to believe then that half of the campus is vacant,” Won Pat told PNC. “We're paying for this every year. We're paying for the full campus."
That space might not be available however, as staff from Guam Early Intervention was seen moving their office space into the A-wing of the Core Tech facility today. Department Of Education Deputy Superintendent Robb Malay says the centralized location will better serve Guam's families than the center's current location at Oceanview Middle School. Malay also confirmed that the learning resource center is expected to move to Tiyan as well.
Speaker Judi Won Pat maintains that the Tiyan facility should be reserved for public school classrooms, and that includes charter schools.
“My personal philosophy is we must first make whatever facilities we have available for classrooms for students before we put any administrative offices in there,” Won Pat said.
The legislature is expected to receive Guahan Academy Charter School's $3 Million budget request next week, a public hearing on the budget is expected to follow.
