reconstitutioneducation dictionary

A drastic corrective action for a school whose students have performed poorly for several years, and have failed to improve. A reconstitution is marked by the replacement of the majority of the school's staff, the hiring of a new principal, and the restaffing of its faculty from scratch. Only some school districts have adopted this method of reform.
