Lesufi had earlier given school management until 1pm today to reverse its decision regarding a teacher found guilty of racism.
The geography teacher had been allowed to continue teaching at the school despite being found to have victimised pupils based on their race.
He was issued with a final written warning, stepped down from senior positions at the institution and also received a pay cut.
