District Conducting Survey to Gather Broad Community Feedback

The Sartell-St. Stephen School District, in partnership with the Morris Leatherman Company, will be conducting a phone survey over the next three weeks to gather broad community feedback on the District and future planning for growth within the district.  The district is in the process of creating a 15-year facilities plan to provide more space for student learning due to continued growth in district enrollment.

“As a district, we have been through our Community Schools Planning process.  This involved over 100 individuals including parents, city officials, parents, staff, senior citizens, business members and alumni.  These folks were engaged in an in-depth process that explored the current and future facilities needs for our students,” shared Jeff Schwiebert, Sartell-St. Stephen School District Superintendent.  “We recognize that these individuals were essential to the planning process and very invested in creating the initial proposal.  We now would like to include and gauge the perspectives of the overall community as we move forward.  This information will further inform and guide our district leadership.”

The survey will call a cross-sectional sample of adults residing in the Sartell-St. Stephen School District and ask about 60 questions.  The individual responses are confidential.  Summaries of all of the information gathered will be reported back to the School Board.
