Centinela school board votes to fire high-paid superintendent

The Board of Education for the Centinela Valley school district voted Tuesday night to begin dismissal proceedings against Supt. Jose Fernandez, who attracted public scrutiny because of compensation that surpassed $750,000 last year.

The vote was 5-0.

Interim Supt. Bob Cox said legal counsel had advised the school board and staff not to comment, but that Fernandez was being dismissed “for cause.” Such an action would allow the district to avoid the contract’s costly buyout provisions.

Fernandez’s contract allows for termination because of a “substantial and material breach.” The termination cannot go into effect until Fernandez has received a written statement explaining the grounds for his dismissal, which had not yet happened on Tuesday, according to the district. Fernandez then has 10 days to schedule a conference with the school board to address the concerns.
