Alejandre Named Assistant County Schools Chief

(November 27)  Ted Alejandre, the assistant superintendent of business services within the office of the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, has been elevated to the position of deputy superintendent, a newly-created post.
There was immediate speculation that Alejandre’s promotion was part of an effort to groom him to become the next San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools.
Last month, San Bernardino County Superintendent Gary Thomas announced he will not seek re-election next year after six years of overseeing programs for the county’s public schools. Thomas ran successfully for the position in 2010 after he was appointed to the post in August 2008 to finish the term of his predecessor, Herbert Fischer.
Alejandre, a graduate of Cal State San Bernardino, has worked in public education for more than 25 years, including having been assistant superintendent of business services for the Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District, which serves students in both San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
In the new position, Alejandre will continue to oversee business services and will stand in for Thomas on issues relating to the office’s authority over all public county schools and the more than 414,000 students who attend them.
