LAUSDlogoThe LA Unified school board returns to another closed session on Oct. 14, with one of the agenda items “Employee Evaluation General Superintendent of Schools.”

It’s the second time in two weeks such an item was listed for discussion, suggesting that the finish line for John Deasy as superintendent may now be in sight. What remains a big open question is how he might get there, largely because the board may be split between members who would like Deasy to go and those who would prefer he remain.

The board is expected to discuss at least two possibilities in their private meeting. One is the possibility of a negotiated settlement between lawyers for Deasy and the board. The other is the possibility that the board would vote, as is its right, to remove him from office.

The closed session precedes an open meeting. Deasy will be absent from both. He leaves tomorrow for an eight-day cultural trip to South Korea.
