The school district in Fond du Lac, Wis., is exploring a charter school proposal that partners the district with Mercury Marine.

With grant funding available, the project-based charter school would create a learning environment for 100 students in grades 3 to 5, district superintendent James Sebert said. The curriculum would be based on science, technology, engineering and math, the Fond du Lac Reporter newspaper reported.

"Our goal is to continue collaboration with Mercury Marine to create a project-based charter school grounded in these subjects," Sebert wrote in a memo to board members.

The focus would be higher-order thinking skills, real-world experience and active participation in hands-on projects, the newspaper reported.

The goal is to have the school open by September 2012.
