The city is looking to turn around two high schools next year by overhauling their staff.
The Department of Education says starting next spring, all teachers, paraprofessionals and guidance counselors at Flushing High School in Queens and DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx will have to reapply and reinterview for their jobs.
Both schools are part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s "Renewal" program, which aims to help low-performing schools.
At Flushing, a new principal was already brought in as part of the initiative.
In a statement, Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña says the move is necessary to turn around the schools.
There's been a high level of turnover at the two high schools in recent years. According to the teachers' union, more than half the teachers at each school have left since 2013.
