What is a Charter school and how does it relate to Guahan Academy?

In 2009, the Guam Legislature passed the Guam Charter School Law. This law allows for up to seven charter schools to be opened on the island.
 
As the first charter school for Guam, Guahan Academy Charter School operates as a non-profit school with a board of directors similarly to that of Department of Educations Board. The Guahan Academy Charter School also operates with nearly all the same benefits of a DOE public school such as Bus transportation and so fourth.
