Welcome to the Project Håtsa website, Guam Public School System’s (GPSS) Teacher Quality Enhancement Grant.
Håtsa, a Chamorro word that means “to raise” or “to build”, is a fitting name for this project, which aims to raise teacher standards to improve student performance.
Project Håtsa is GPSS’ structured framework to develop and implement education reform focusing on teacher certification, teacher preparation, professional growth, supervision, and evaluation, through systemic change.
The project, in partnership with the Center For Excellence In Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service, (Guam CEDDERS), University of Guam, and guided by a broad cross-section of community stakeholders, started October 1, 2005.
