Her appointment is effective April 16, one day after the resignation of Chancellor Carla Walter takes effect. Walter announced her resignation March 15 due to personal reasons after eight months in the role, according to district officials.

Jackson, who will begin serving the district immediately on a consulting basis, first joined the district in 2004 when she was hired as vice president of instruction at College of Alameda.

In 2010, she was promoted to president of the college and left in 2013 to become chancellor at the neighboring Chabot-Las Positas district, a position she held until resigning in August 2018. She was also interim president of Skyline Community College in San Bruno from 2019 to 2020.

The Peralta district encompasses the College of Alameda and Berkeley City College, as well as Oakland's Laney College and Merritt College.
