Rhayda Barnes-Thomas had been the school system's Title One coordinator. She allegedly diverted money from the federally-funded program to buy electronics for herself and her family.
The criminal complaint against the 40-year-old Accokeek resident says she purchased computers, video game consoles and televisions with the money. During a search of her home and a relative's home, authorities say they recovered some of the items.
Barnes-Thomas is being charged with theft from a government program. Federal authorities also accuse her of making false statements in connection with the alleged theft.
A spokeswoman for the school system says Barnes-Thomas no longer works there.
