Academic Policy Committee

    Frontier Charter School is governed by the Academic Policy Committee (APC).

    APC Meetings are open to the public. Frontier Charter School's APC meets a minimum of four times a year. Other meetings are scheduled as needed. In addition, the APC chairperson meets regularly with the chief executive officer to discuss school matters. All APC members are parents or members of our community. The APC members regularly review their charter and, once every 10 years, are required to conduct an extensive rewrite of the charter and resubmit an application to the district and the state. 

    Next APC Meeting: January 12, 2022, 2:30-4:30 at our Anchorage Office 400 W. Northern Lights Blvd Suite 6., Anchorage AK.

    Powerful Practices

    In the spring of 2014, through the Advanc-ED accreditation process, the extern review team noted the following as a powerful practice:  "Frontier Charter School's Academic Policy Committee (APC) is a model of governance for APC's statewide.  This exceptionally professional and effective group of volunteers strongly supports the mission of the school and promotes a culture that is student-centered and is aligned with the mission.  An educated and informed board that encourages stakeholder involvement results in improve professional practice and creates an environment for student success."
