JPPSS superintendent to step down in September


Dr. James Meza Jr., superintendent of the Jefferson Parish Public School System, announced Thursday that he will leave his position at the end of September. It's a role he has held since 2011.

Under Meza's leadership, the school system has improved its performance rating, balanced the budget and enabled the first employee pay raises in three years, according to a JPPSS news release. 

"Based on our results, my mission has been successful and is complete," said Meza in the release. "The next 90 days will focus on a successful launch of the new school year and a transition phase working with the Board and staff to sustain continued academic success."
