District chancellor to resign

The Los Angeles Community College District chancellor announced Tuesday that he will be resigning from his position, effective June 30.

“The Chancellor who leads this… district must take the long view and make a long-term commitment, something I’m unable to do,” Chancellor Daniel LaVista said in an email circulated by his office.

LaVista adds in the email that he wants to “pursue other opportunities that combine my professional and family interests.”

Because the district’s Board of Trustees only received affirmation of LaVista’s decision today, it is still premature for any concrete plans to already be in place with regards to finding a replacement, said Perrin Reid, executive assistant to the chancellor.

LaVista became chancellor for the LACCD Aug. 1, 2010.
