ACADEMIC POLICY COMMITTEE (APC)
Academic Policy Committee
Frontier Charter School is governed by the Academic Policy Committee (APC).
Frontier Charter School is governed by an Academic Policy Committee (APC), which consists of parents, teachers, and members of our community who have a vested interest in homeschooling at Frontier. These volunteers establish the mission for our school and ensure that the policies of the school are in line with this mission. They oversee the management, budget, and processes of our school, according to established bylaws. Additionally, APC members conduct an extensive rewrite of the charter and resubmit an application for renewal to the Anchorage School District and the State of Alaska every ten years. Parents and teachers serve three-year terms, and other community members one-year terms. APC meetings are held at least four times a year and more often as needed.
In 2014, the Advanc-ED accreditation review team noted that, “Frontier Charter School’s Academic Policy Committee 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 improved professional practice and creates an environment for student success.” Frontier Charter School is proud of, and grateful for, the efforts of our current and former APC representatives.
All members of the public, and especially our Frontier Families, are invited to attend meetings to engage with our APC members and learn more about school operations.

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 improved professional practice and creates an environment for student success."
