FISHERS — Allen Bourff, superintendent of Hamilton Southeastern Schools, will retire at the end of the 2020-21 school year.

Bouff was appointed superintendent in January 2015 after he spent more than a decade in the same position with Richmond Community Schools. His last day with HSE will be June 30, 2021, according to a news release sent Monday morning.

“Dr. Bourff has transformed our instructional framework with HSE21 and fostering community partnerships with Conner Prairie and the City of Fishers,” Michelle Fullhart, president of the HSE Board of School Trustees, said in the release. “He has also been integral in the opening of two new schools — Southeastern Elementary and Hamilton Southeastern-Fishers Academy. We especially appreciate his leadership during this unforeseen and challenging year.”

Hamilton Southeastern Schools hired the Illinois-based consulting firm BWP & Associated to conduct a hiring search.

The district said the search will include a series of focus groups. Members of the community are being selected to determine the qualities of the next superintendent, who the HSE Board of Trustees hope will be named in the spring and begin July 1, 2021.
