“I am honored to have been nominated and elected to serve with other education administrators from across the country,” Dr. Jackson said. “AASA, The School Superintendents Association – as its mission statement says – advocates for equitable access for all students to the highest quality public education, and I look forward to helping advance that objective.”
The association develops and supports school system leaders through the national exchange of ideas; access to professional learning, publications, and resources; and opportunities to champion initiatives to help transform the future of public education.
Dr. Jackson also serves on the Texas Association of School Administrators Executive Committee, the Texas Association of School Boards Risk Management Fund Board of Directors and the University Interscholastic League Board of Directors, among several other statewide and local organizations.
