if the school board plans to get rid of the least effective teachers and not teachers based on experience/seniority. Only assumption A stands valid and the board plan assumes that it can determine the effectiveness of the teachers to get rid of the least effective teachers first.

Answer will definitely be (A) , if you try to negate this option the argument falls apart.

The school board has determined to reduce the staff and decided to remove the least efficient ones first.
Out of the given options, only A is strong. Obviously if the school does not have a method to determine the effectiveness, they cannot implement this plan.

Hence the assumption has to be that "there is a way of determining the effectiveness of teachers"

Correct Option: A
