BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says she will seek a second four-year term as North Dakota’s superintendent of public instruction.

Baesler on Tuesday said she will request a letter of support from delegates to the North Dakota Republican state convention, which is being held April 1-3 in Fargo.

Baesler says she’s running for re-election to continue progress on a number of education initiatives, including strengthening college preparation for high school seniors. Her initiative aims to reduce the number of North Dakota students who require remedial studies while in college and broaden availability for advanced high school coursework for students who are excelling.

She says she’s especially excited by the challenges offered by the new federal education law, which Congress approved in December. It allows state and local officials more control over education.
