BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Gov. Jack Dalrymple has appointed longtime educator Rick Buresh to serve as an adviser on rapidly growing schools.

Buresh also will help form an advisory group to be comprised of western North Dakota school superintendents, teachers, counselors and school board members. That part of the state is seeing big student increases because of the oil boom.

Buresh was a longtime school official in Bismarck before taking the superintendent's position in Fargo five years ago. He retired in June and this summer was a candidate for a seat on the state Board of Higher Education. Dalrymple chose someone else for that position.

Dalrymple says he will include assistance for fast-growing schools in his budget proposal for next year's Legislature.
