LAWNDALE, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California school board has fired its superintendent amid investigations into his outsized compensation.

The Daily Breeze reports the Centinela Valley Union High School District board wrapped up a six-week termination process against Jose Fernandez Wednesday night.

The 54-year-old Fernandez has come under fire for drawing a compensation package ranging from $663,000 to $750,000 in 2013.

In addition to the internal audit being conducted, Fernandez's pay is under review by the FBI, the Los Angeles County Office of Education and the district attorney's office.

Interim Superintendent Bob Cox said he doesn't know whether Fernandez will contest the firing.
