Dr. George J. McKenna III — a retired veteran educator — was sworn in to the Los Angeles School Board of Education Tuesday as its newest member, representing Board District 1. McKenna won the special election that was called for after former Board Member Marguerite Poindexter LaMotte passed away in December.
Superintendent John E. Deasy presented highlights of the District’s achievements to the Board of Education at Tuesday’s meeting.
With more than 27 years of experience in the field of education, the Board of Education approved the hiring of Dr. Ruth Pérez to serve as Deputy Superintendent of Instruction for LAUSD.
