Centinela Valley School Board Changes

The new president of the Centinela Valley School District board says he wants nothing to do with Superintendent Jose Fernandez.

Hugo Rojas was named president during a marathon six-hour board meeting yesterday. He replaced Martiza Molina, who had been a strong supporter of Fernandez.

Fernandez was placed on leave because of his pay deal that made him $674,000 in 2013. Rojas wasted no time saying what he thinks of Fernandez.

“Our superintendent was greedy,” said Rojas.

“Our superintendent obviously has a questionable background.”

The board also voted to hire investigators and lawyers to look into Fernandez's contract.
