The Guam Legislature passed Bills 286 and 287 on Friday, April 29, 2022. Bill 286-36 exempts the 180 instructional days, or its equivalence, requirement for students in SY2019-2020 to 2001-2022. Although teachers fulfilled their required amount of days to accommodate cohorts to reduce the strain of having crowded classrooms and hallways, GDOE wanted the passage of this Bill to curtail any possible lawsuits. Bill 287-36 exempts students who are currently Juniors and Seniors from completing their service-learning requirements. Bill 287 noted that the pandemic did not allow students to participate physically in these service activities. The Bills currently await action by Governor Lou Leon Guerrero.
