(Milan, Ind.) - A former superintendent at Milan Community Schools has been chosen to lead a school district in Ohio.
Andrew Jackson was with Milan Community Schools for 14 years, serving as Superintendent in 2007. In 2008, he went to the Northwest Local School District in Ohio in 2008 as a Director of Business and continued to work his way to becoming Assistant Superintendent of Business Services in 2012.
On Friday, the Northwest School Board voted to hire Dr. Jackson as the 9,600-student district’s new superintendent. He’ll begin his new role April 1.
“We are very pleased with the selection of Dr. Andrew Jackson as the new superintendent of our schools. Dr. Jackson brings a wealth of knowledge to the table and we look forward to working with him. His educational background and previous experience gives him an outsider’s perspective, and he has earned a great deal of respect from colleagues within the Northwest Community,” said David Denny, the president of the Northwest Local Schools Board of Education.
Jackson graduated from Indiana University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. Continuing his education, he received his Masters and Educational Specialist degrees from Ball State University. In 2011, Jackson received his Doctorate of Education, also from Ball State University.
