• Dr. Alex Cherniss is Finalist for Superintendent


    The San Marino Unified School District announced the selection of Dr. Alex Cherniss as the finalist to become the district’s new Superintendent of Schools as of July 1, pending a site visit meeting on May 19 and board approval at the regularly scheduled meeting on May 27.

    “I am truly honored at the prospect of joining the San Marino school community,” said Dr. Cherniss. “San Marino has a long established tradition of excellence, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with the district toward achieving even greater levels of success in the future.”

    Dr. Cherniss comes from the Los Angeles County Office of Education where he currently serves as the Chief Financial Officer. As CFO, he certifies the budgets of all 80 school districts in Los Angeles County, which includes $13 billion in fiscal oversight.

    “The Board of Education, with Leadership Associates as our consultants, conducted a lengthy and rigorous search process,” said Chris Norgaard, President of the San Marino Board of Education.  “We listened to the community, and we are confident that Dr. Cherniss can lead us to where we all want to be—proud of but never resting on past success, always doing better, and helping our kids achieve the best possible education in every sense.”

    Dr. Cherniss’ other professional accomplishments include having been named the American Association of School Administrators Education Scholar, the USC Dean’s Superintendents Advisory Group Scholar, and the Beverly Hills Unified School District Administrator of the Year.

    Dr. Cherniss earned his Bachelors degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara, his Masters degree from PepperdineUniversity, and his doctorate from the University of Southern California.
