Posted: Updated:

HARVEY, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The Jefferson Parish school superintendent says he will leave his position at the end of September. Dr. James Meza Jr. has held the superintendent's job since 2011.

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

Meze said his mission has been successfully and is complete.

School Board President Mike Delesdernier says under Meza's leadership the district is in great shape for the next generation of leaders.
