Board scrambles to launch new effort

Like reconstitution, which was tried three years ago at seven high schools, intervention provides for the expedited removal of staff found wanting.

By law, teachers and other staffers have a year to demonstrate their ability. Under reconstitution, they were judged on the basis of brief interviews.
