Brownton, New Century Academy in talks

New Century Academy, a seventh- through 12th-grade charter school in Hutchinson, may be looking to relocated, the Brownton City Council heard at a special meeting Tuesday, Sept. 23.

Mayor Jay Werner said he, Council Member Norm Schwarze and City Clerk Ella Kruse have been meeting with New Century personnel about possibly leasing the former Brownton school, which the city owns, to New Century.

The city sent out questionnaires with its last utility bills asking citizens if they would be interested in a charter school in the city.

More about the issue will appear in the Oct. 1 print edition of The McLeod County Chronicle.
