SARTELL -- The Sartell City Council has approved the preliminary and final plat of the property where the new Sartell High School will be built.

The move paves the way for a site plan to be drafted. The site plan will identify what features the property will have such as architectural, landscaping and engineering details.

The new Sartell-St. Stephen High School will be built on a 126-acre parcel of land adjacent to Oak Ridge Elementary.

Construction is expected to begin this summer on the $89,500,000 school with the opening planned for the fall of 2019.
