Baesler wins Superintendent of Public Instruction reelection


North Dakota's Superintendent of Public Instruction, Kirsten Baesler, has been reelected to her post as leader of the North Dakota K-12 education system.

“I’d like to offer my congratulations to Kirsten Baesler on her reelection as superintendent. Her victory shows that North Dakotans are eager to continue Kirsten’s commitment to ensuring that each child graduates Choice Ready and has the opportunity to achieve the highest levels of success in education, the workforce, or the military,” North Dakota Republican Party Chairman Rick Berg said.

Baesler issued a statement following the announcement.

"I am deeply grateful to have again earned the support of North Dakotans to serve as your State Superintendent," she says in a statement. "So many people have worked so hard to make this day possible, and I want to extend my deep gratitude to them."

In the next four years, Baesler says North Dakota "must work as one to learn from our experience and provide an even stronger education for our young people. We will continue to put students first, support our teachers, fund our schools fairly, and protect our taxpayers. This is work that’s worth doing. Thank you for the opportunity to serve, and may God continue to bless you and the state of North Dakota!"
