A Message from Andrea

Hello Fellow San Bernardino County residents,

I am running to serve as a Board of Trustee for our San Bernardino County Board of Education.  I hope you will support me on my journey to serve our county youth and greater community.

I have been a public affairs consultant and small business owner for over 20 years.  I am the Executive Director for the Highland Area Chamber of Commerce. Graduating from UC Riverside with a Bachelor’s degree and getting an MBA from Cal State San Bernardino allowed me as a single mom to raise my son happily and comfortable in San Bernardino County.  I believe that education is the greatest equalizer to sustain families and their children’s future.

Schools should educate students for a variety of ever-evolving career options and not just provide one-size fits all.   I will introduce partnerships with the business community and other community stakeholders to prepare students to be college/career competitive, and be responsive to different student needs.

I look forward to working on behalf of the public to assure facilities, programs and classrooms are supported by well-prepared budgets and public transparency.

The COVID-19 crisis is impacting everyone, our teachers, our children, parents and every school district personnel in SB County.  Working together we can ensure a pathway for every child to reach their goals.

I ask for your support and vote so that we together can support our schools and families.

Thank you,

Andrea De Leon
