Janice Tenorio was unanimously re-elected as chairperson of the Board of Education during the monthly BOE meeting yesterday.
This is Tenorio’s second term and her last and she is grateful for another opportunity to serve the community in this capacity.
“I feel great. This year is my last year, and to continue the work that we have done, especially with the new incoming commissioner as well, it will be a challenge but it will be good. I really thank all my colleagues in regards to supporting me and believing in my leadership,” she said.
Tenorio said her upcoming term would be a challenging one, especially when faced with PSS’ financial status.
“It will be a challenging term, especially [the] budget, but I have faith and I’m confident in regards to working with the central government, the Legislature, and Finance, [about] our needs,” Tenorio said.
PSS remains in austerity due to lack of funding for operations.
BOE members Herman Atalig, Marylou Ada, Andrew Orsini, and Phillip Mendiola-Long voted in support of re-electing Tenorio as the BOE chair.
Tenorio started her first term as chair back in January 2019.
