James Meza might be staying on as Jefferson Parish public schools superintendent after his current contract expires June 30. The School Board is moving to extend his employment through 2014, a month after School Board elections.
Meza, who has said he does not want another long-term contract, was not available for comment Wednesday. But Board President Larry Dale said he is amenable to staying on until after the elections. "It would allow the board to either decide to have an interim or they could ask him to stay on until the new superintendent comes on," Dale said.
