LOS ANGELES (AP) - The former superintendent of Los Angeles Unified School District has accepted a consulting job with the Broad Academy.

John Deasy will be a “superintendent in residence” for a school leader training and development initiative funded by philanthropist Eli Broad.

The Broad Academy said in a statement Monday that boosting opportunity and achievement is a testament to Deasy’s drive and belief in students.

Deasy resigned last October under scrutiny for his handling of a $1.3 billion program to provide iPads for all students and over the rollout of a new student records system that malfunctioned as students went back to class.

The iPad controversy led to an FBI investigation and the district is still fixing the new records system.
