Just relased (sic) are the results of a UTLA member-wide performance review of LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy.
LAUSD teachers and health and human services professionals evaluated the Superintendent in a 25 question survey and on every question, the vast majority of survey takers found John Deasy’s performance either “below average” or “poor.”
UTLA President Warren Fletcher said, “We believe the people directly impacted by the Superintendent’s decisions and management style are in the best position to evaluate his work. That’s why UTLA asked teachers and health and human services professionals to complete the survey.” UTLA will share the results with LAUSD’s Board of Education.
The lowest score was for morale and spending money wisely. When asked if the Superintendent positively influenced the morale of the staff, 86% graded him below average or poor, and 85% of the respondents found the Superintendent below average or poor when asked if he spent District money wisely.
The survey asked if the Superintendent ensured that schools have adequate classified staffing (e.g., clerical and custodial) and 85% found the Superintendent below average or poor on this question.
In April, UTLA asked members if they had confidence in the Superintendent’s leadership — 91% of the 16,000 respondents said, “No.” That finding, combined with today’s results, raises questions about John Deasy’s effectiveness as Superintendent.
Nearly 8500 members of UTLA evaluated the Superintendent’s performance. Answers were on a scale from one to five, with five being the highest.
