Los Angeles Unified school district superintendent John Deasy is expected to announce his resignation Thursday, ending his nearly four-year tenure as head of the nation’s second-largest school district.
UPDATE: Deasy has since resigned as LAUSD superintendent
A source close to the discussions who was not authorized to speak for the school board confirmed Deasy's plans.
The move comes after months of controversy, including Deasy's handling of LA Unified's iPad program. Emails published by KPCC show Deasy communicated about project specifications before the project went out for public bid.
