Lawndale Superintendent’s $663K Salary Sparks Call For School Board’s Recall, Criminal Investigation
The revelation that the superintendent of a tiny Southern California school district earned more than President Barack Obama last year sparked calls Tuesday for his resignation, a criminal investigation and a recall of the school board.
Residents demanded answers at an emergency meeting in Lawndale Tuesday night after a series of reports revealed an excessive amount of compensation for the superintendent of the Centinela Valley Union High School District.
Jose Fernandez, who works as superintendent of a small South Bay school district, reportedly gets a total compensation package of more than $600,000.
