Charter school plans revamp of Garden City campus

Anser Charter School in Garden City hopes to launch a large-scale revamp of its current campus.

School leaders put out a request for proposals this week to rework its current facility. Highlights include tearing down portions of the existing school, removing portable classrooms and building a new 2-story building addition. Parking and drop off locations for students and parents would also change. Outdoor playground space will also see additional screening to provide beefed up security.

According to the RFP, Answer officials hope the $7 million project will be wrapped up by the beginning of the 2021-22 school year.

A 9-month process to decide on the future direction for the school resulted in the draft campus plan.

Anser is a Kindergarten-8th grade school that uses the EL Education experiential learning model. It is a public charter school for 375 students, and uses a lottery process to determine admissions.
