Big job ahead for new North Forest board

HOUSTON The state officially replaced the old school board yesterday because of academic and financial problems. A top priority will be working on the district's $13 million deficit. They also want to focus on teacher quality.

Two /*North Forest*/ residents are on the new board along with a Harlingen ISD board member. Adrian Johnson with the TEA takes over as superintendent.

/*13 Undercover*/'s Wayne Dolcefino exposed where some of the financial problems came from. Former special education director /*Ruth Watson*/ put her relatives on the payroll for jobs they were not qualified for.

Watson is under investigation by the Harris County district attorney's office.
