Bismarck Public Schools Superintendent Announces Retirement

BISMARCK, ND (KFYR) — Bismarck Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jason Hornbacher has announced he will be retiring at the end of the 2022-23 school year.

Dr. Hornbacher made the announcement this morning, saying his retirement would be effective June 30, 2023. He said the notice would give the school district enough time to hire the next person to fill the next position.

Dr. Hornbacher is a 1984 graduate of Bismarck High School and a veteran who served in Desert Storm. He began his career in education as an elementary school educator before moving into administrative positions. He took the post of Superintendent of the BPS in January 2019.

“The collective work that BPS has done over the past 4 years is only surpassed by the incredible relationships we have forged with each other, this community and, most importantly, the relationships we have with students and parents who call BPS home,” Dr. Hornbacher said in a message to colleagues on Wednesday.

He went on to say, “I am entering this next phase of my life with a deep commitment to being the best husband, father, grandfather, son and brother possible…When I was first hired by BPS , the tagline was BPS is #1, I believe that tagline still rings true today.
