In what’s become an annual move, the School District of Philadelphia said Tuesday it will reshuffle the staff at six low-performing schools in hopes of turning the schools around.

How exactly the District plans to make changes won’t be announced until later this school year, but it’s possible that the schools could experience a massive turnover of staff or administrators.

In the past, District turnaround schools have replaced more than 50 percent of their staff, although it’s unclear whether or where that might happen during this round of interventions.

The six schools slated for shakeup are:

  • Edward Steel, a K-8 school in North Philadelphia.
  • Edward Gideon, a K-8 school in North Philadelphia.
  • Feltonville School of Arts & Sciences, a 6-8 school in North Philadelphia.
  • Wagner, a 6-8 school in North Philadelphia.
  • James Rhoads, a K-8 school in West Philadelphia.
  • Penn Treaty, a 6-12 school in Fishtown.
