• Shaping Teaching and Learning Through Curriculum, Assessment, Technology, and Professional Development

    The foundation for teaching and learning within the Sartell-St. Stephen School District is rooted in our mission “to develop well-rounded citizens capable of becoming successful and contributing members to society by providing outstanding instruction in a caring and supportive environment where excellence is the expected outcome of all learners.”

    Implementing a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum involves planning, teaching, assessment and data analysis. Sartell-St. Stephen Schools prides itself on curriculum that is developed and refined on a continuous cycle. Elementary and Secondary Content Area Specialists, under the leadership of Building Principals and the Assistant Superintendent, guide staff in an on-going process of aligning curriculum, instruction, and assessment to Minnesota State and National Standards.
