SARTELL - The Sartell-St. Stephen school district has seen continued growth during the last several years.

Superintendent Jeff Schwiebert says there has been a 50 student increase at the district this year.

To accommodate the growth of students, the district passed a resolution on Monday to hire an architect that will be responsible to come up with a long-term facility plan.

Schwiebert says the Sartell community is growing and that should lead to continued growth at the district.

In the last 17 years, the district has seen a combined increase of 1300 to 1400 students.
