The San Bernardino City Unified School District Board of Education will hold a swearing-in ceremony for newly appointed trustee Felicia Alexander at its next meeting on Tuesday, February 7 at the Dr. Margaret Hill Community Room, 777 North F Street in San Bernardino.
As a provisional appointee, Alexander will serve on the Board until the general election in November 2024. The public is invited to attend the Oath of Office ceremony and may also view the proceedings live online on the District’s YouTube channel.
Alexander’s provisional appointment becomes effective in 30 days unless voters submit a petition to the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools calling for a special election, pursuant to Education Code 5091.
Alexander said she is interested in getting back to the pre-COVID graduation rates, making sure middle schools have the resources needed for after-school programs, and growing the career pathways programs. She also said she has three grandchildren in San Bernardino City Schools, so she has a vested interest in the District.
She brings to the Board her experience as Sector Director, Global Supply Chain, where she leads global logistics efforts for an aeronautics and defense company. Alexander is also an adjunct professor at California State University, Long Beach, teaching courses in operations management, supply chain management, and reversed logistics modules. She has a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a master’s degree in organizational development and leadership.
The six-member Board interviewed nine candidates publicly during a special meeting held on January 24, 2023, before selecting Alexander.
