Debra Jackson

Will serve from January to June during search

The Garrison school board on Nov. 20 announced it has named an interim superintendent to succeed Laura Mitchell, who was hired in 2014 but announced last month she will leave the position on Dec. 31 after reaching an “amicable mutual agreement” with the district.

Debra Jackson, who is based in Newburgh and has been a superintendent in the Highland Falls, North Salem and Bedford districts, will serve from Jan. 1 to June 30, 2020. The board also said it hired District Wise Search Consultants of Woodbury to lead the search for a superintendent.
