Staff at Mesa's Carson Junior High School were told Friday they will have to re-interview for their jobs because the school has failed to make sufficient academic progress.
The notice to staff Friday was part of Arizona's corrective action plan for schools that do not meet federal No Child Left Behind guidelines, district spokeswoman Kathy Bareiss said.
In Carson's case, the school has failed for several years to make AYP, or adequate yearly progress, based on AIMS scores.
The school will also have a new principal next year. Current principal Dan Cooper is retiring June 30.
Teachers who are not hired back to work at Carson, but who are still owed contracts by the district, will have a chance to be employed elsewhere, Bareiss said.
