LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy plans to resign in February, the Los Angeles Times reported today, citing high-level district officials, including some who asked not to be named.
Deasy received a one-year contract extension in October, extending his contract through June 2015, with an annual salary of $330,000, The Times reported.
Under the terms of Deasy’s contract, the extension was automatic provided that he received a positive evaluation by the end of October. The school board and Deasy retained the right to terminate his employment at any time with 30 days’ notice.
“Our students are benefiting from his innovative and visionary direction,” then-school board President Monica Garcia said after the 6-0 vote in remarks reported by The Times.
