Tony Fladeland from Bismarck, ND will join the Bismarck Public School District as principal at Moses Elementary School starting in August. The vacancy was created when Dr. Jason Hornbacher was named Superintendent effective March 1. Prairie Rose Principal Matt Guenther was named interim principal at Moses. Fladeland will replace interim principal Matt Guenther.
Fladeland has been a principal at St. Mary’s Grade School for the past 9 years.
Nineteen people applied for the open Bismarck principal position, eleven were pre-interviewed, and two finalists were interviewed by a team of BPS staff members.
Brad Barnhardt, Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Schools in Bismarck, says, “We are very excited to have Mr. Fladeland join our team. He has a team mentality and ‘we are all in it together’ attitude. His servant leadership philosophy will support the Moses families and our community.”
