Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy told the Los Angeles Times Friday he has not submitted a letter of resignation.
The Times had reported that Deasy plans to resign in February, citing high-level district officials, including some who asked not to be named.
There was no immediate response to City News Service's request for confirmation of the report.
Deasy told The Times he would have more to say about his future with the district Tuesday after he is evaluated by the Board of Education.
Deasy has recently drawn heavy criticism for his handling of a $1 billion plan to give students iPads.
Deasy has revamped teacher evaluations to include the use of students' standardized-test scores and altered the seniority system to limit the effect of job cuts at schools with large numbers of less-experienced instructors, who are generally the first to be laid off.
Deasy became superintendent in April 2011, succeeding retiring Superintendent Ramon Cortines. Deasy joined the district in August 2010 as Cortines' chief deputy.
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.
Deasy previously served as deputy director of education for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, superintendent of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District and Prince George's County Schools in Maryland.— City News Service
