A member of the Jefferson Parish School Board is stepping down just five days after his appointment.

The school board appointed Rafael Rafidi to the District 6 seat last Wednesday, and within two days was asking for his resignation.

After Rafidi's appointment, social media posts came to light in which he complained about teachers and referred to the coronavirus as the "China flu."

Rafidi submitted his resignation on Monday.
