After poor grades, school staffs told to reapply

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Big changes are coming to some Bay area schools. Staff members at seven Pinellas and Hillsborough County schools will have to reapply for their jobs.

If they are asked not to return, they could be reassigned to other schools within the school district.

The following schools in Pinellas County are affected by this plan: Azalea and Pinellas Park Middle Schools; Maximo, Fairmount Park and Melrose Elementary School.

The schools have had poor performance grades for at least two years.

The state gave the school district several options for turning around the schools. They could close the schools, convert them to charters, hire an outside company to run the schools or create a district-managed turnaround plan.

Pinellas County chose to create a turnaround plan. The plan goes through several phases and currently they are evaluating staff members.

All staff members should be in place by Aug. 19.
