The commissioner shall make periodic reports to the state board, the education committee of the senate, and the education administration and planning committee of the house of representatives on the progress of any local school system or school placed on probation. Whenever it appears to the commissioner that a local school system or school placed on probation pursuant to § 49-1-602 is not taking action necessary to resolve the deficiencies identified in any report or study of the system or school, the commissioner may with the approval of the state board order the removal of some or all of the members of the local board and the director of schools and appoint an agent to direct all operations of the system. Before the removal or appointment functions are exercised, the commissioner shall also appear before the education committee of the senate and the education administration and planning committee of the house of representatives for that purpose and present the reasons for the proposed actions. The committees may either endorse or refuse to endorse the proposed actions. The agent shall have all authority and powers previously vested in the local board and director of schools and such other powers as may be granted by law or regulation.
