The District 205 Education Committee heard a proposal Monday night that would create an independent high school with a full array of subjects.
Students would also get hands on learning in many different construction trades, which could develop into career opportunities.
"[Students] who have dropped out, who are not employed, who are receiving social benefits, who are in jail, who are looking for a pathway back in to complete their education, that's what this school is about," GreenTek Career Academy Charter School representative Kerry Knodle.
The proposal is for five years and would cost close to 8-million dollars.
There is a public hearing to discuss the charter school more on Tuesday, September 4th at 7pm on the third floor of the district administration building.
