Guam to Receive $83M for School Renovations

Guam is to receive $83 million from the U.S. government that is aimed at repairing dilapidated schools, and purchasing computers and other high tech equipment.

The funds stem from last year’s federal economic stimulus measure, and were awarded by the U.S. Department of Education.

About $30 million will be spent renovating classrooms and school facilities.

Almost $10 million will pay for the purchase and installation of computers for middle and high school students, as well as a mobile laptop lab. Wireless internet service will be installed in classrooms.

The school system’s central business office, which mostly operates with paper documents, also will be upgraded with computers.

The University of Guam also will receive some of the stimulus funds.
