The San Bernardino City Unified School District Board Appointed Mrs. Felicia Alexander on February 7, 2023, to fill a vacancy from a field of nine local applicants.

As a provisional appointee, Mrs. Alexander will serve on the Board until the general election in November of 2024.
“I’m here in front of you because I’m passionate about our scholars, I’m passionate about the resources that we all can provide them because they are our future, “Mrs. Alexander said during her opening remarks to the Board.”
Mrs. Alexander said she is interested in getting back to the pre-COVID graduation rates, making sure middle schools have 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.
