LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy is having a closed-door meeting with the seven-member Board of Education today and will get his annual review. Today’s meeting caps days of rumors surrounding Deasy’s future at the country’s second largest school district. It started with a Los Angeles Times article Thursday that reported Deasy’s intention to resign his post in February, citing unnamed sources.

Los Angeles Board of education President Richard Vladovic cancelled a special board meeting on Tuesday on the district’s troubled iPad program to lengthen the meeting that has already been scheduled with Deasy. For his part, Deasy has told various news outlets that he has not tendered a letter of resignation and won’t discuss the matter further until after Tuesday’s meeting.
