New York City Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña has announced the formation of a task force to monitor academic integrity in city schools. Principals and guidance counselors will have to attend additional training sessions to help them maintain high standards.

The task force will provide oversight, as well as training, and will produce biannual reports on how well schools are implementing academic guidelines. The task force will include one member from outside the city's education department, and its work will be reviewed by the auditing firm Ernst & Young.

The announcement comes after a principal was fired last month for allowing students to earn passing grades without attending class or turning in any work.
