CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The kids at Piedmont Elementary School have a new cheer these days.

It goes, "Piedmont rocks, we are an innovation zone! Bring your kids here and they won't go home!"

Students are stepping into the "Innovation Zone." It's a catchy name for a new way of doing the same old school stuff and it's unique to each school that is taking part.

Nineteen schools across the state of West Virginia are a part of this project. It allows schools to sidestep state law and do what works best for their own school.
