San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools (SBCSS) Ted Alejandre was awarded State Superintendent of the Year by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA).
“I am extremely honored and humbled by this accolade,” said County Superintendent Ted Alejandre. “I could not have achieved this recognition without the support and dedication of the staff at County Schools, our students, families, community partners and the remarkable educators I’ve had the honor of working alongside throughout my professional journey.”
As county superintendent, Alejandre works collaboratively with educators, families, and other agencies and stakeholders to provide advocacy, leadership and services for and on behalf of more than 400,000 K-12 students attending public schools in San Bernardino County.
In addition to his illustrious career in education, Alejandre is a highly decorated, retired U.S. Air Force (USAF) Lieutenant Colonel. He received the USAF Meritorious Service Award three times, the Air Force Commendation Medal, the Air Force Good Conduct Medal and many other distinctions. He began his service in 1984.
Alejandre will be recognized for the award at the ACSA Leadership Summit in San Diego on Nov. 4.
