ACADEMIC POLICY COMMITTEE (APC)
PROVIDING NEW ALTERNATIVES FOR A BETTER HOME SCHOOL EDUCATION
Academic Policy Committee
Frontier Charter School is governed by the Academic Policy Committee. Frontier Charter School's APC meets a minimum of four times a year. Other meetings are scheduled as needed. In addition, the APC chair meets regularly with the principal to discuss school matters. All APC members are parents and/or members of our community. APC members regularly conduct an extensive rewrite of the charter and resubmit an application to the district and the state. Elections are held annually to fill positions on the APC. Working in conjunction with the Anchorage School District, the APC hires and evaluates the Chief Executive Officer and helps to maintain the vision and goals of the founders.
Frontier Charter School APC meetings are live-streamed on the Frontier Charter School Youtube video channel “FrontierHomeSchool”. Meetings are open to the public. To make a public testimony please call 742-1182 before 12:00 pm on the day of the meeting for directions.
Next regular APC meeting: 2:00-3:30 pm, October 27, 2020 MEETING AGENDA
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."
