They will be represented by the Michigan Alliance of Charter Teachers & Staff, an AFT local.
The school is run by the Phoenix-based Leona Group, which operates in Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. The Associated Press left phone and email messages for the company after business hours Thursday.
