The principal of San Fernando Elementary School was reassigned Tuesday amid allegations she spent thousands of dollars in school district money to buy personal items such as appliances and food. Candida Fernandez, in her seventh year as head of the 1,150-pupil school, will work in an administrative position away from campus until the district completes an internal audit, said Maria Reza, who oversees Los Angeles Unified School District campuses in the east San Fernando Valley.
