The LA Unified Board meets this morning, with much of their business scheduled for a closed door session.

In private, the six members will discuss various legal cases involving the district as well as updates on labor contracts and student discipline matters.

At some point, in open session, they will consider an interim financial report headed to the Los Angeles County Office of Education, with the usual notation that based on current projections that the District may not be able to meet its financial obligations for the current fiscal year and the two years to follow.

Also expected: An announcement that Thelma Melendez, until last week Mayor Eric Garcetti‘s liaison to the district, will join the district as second-in-command overseeing Beyond the Bell, LA Unified’s after-school program.
