Hagåtña, Guam – Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo today issued the following statement regarding the Guam Department of Education’s request for the U.S. Department of Education to reconsider the special conditions it has placed on the financial management of federal funding.
“I support the Guam Department of Education’s efforts for the U.S. Department of Education to reconsider its special conditions on GDOE’s financial management. I met with Superintendent Jon Fernandez, Guam Education Board Chair Mark Mendiola, and the GDOE fiscal team during their visit to DC last month, and they reported to me the progress the Department has made to better manage federal funding provided to Guam’s public schools. I look forward to continuing to work with GDOE and supporting their efforts to provide our public school students with the best education possible.”
