SARTELL - The Sartell-St. Stephen School District is encouraging community members to apply to be a part of the Community Schools Planning Committee.

In January, the district moved forward with Cunningham Group to come up with long-term facility plans to accommodate continued growth and space concerns in the district.

The committee will be responsible for coming up with priorities and needs for district schools and facilities. The recommendations will then be presented to the school board in the fall.

The district is gathering a committee of 50-100 members composed of district staff, students, families and community members.

The time commitment means participating in a series of nine workshops from March to October. If you're interested in participating, you can contact Stacy at 656-3715 or apply online and find more information here.

Applications will be reviewed on February 17th.
