Innovation Grant Schools

    Does anyone have any experience working at a school that has
    received an Innovation Grant? From want I understand, the
    grant makes schools exempt from the Union Contract and
    enables them to increase the school year/day and offer "at
    will" employee contracts. How is this different from a
    Charter School? I'm just curious if anyone out there has
    first hand experience working at an Innovation Grant school
    and could speak specifically on how the grant affected
    working conditions and student achievement.
