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.


    Public Meetings

    APC meetings are held in the school conference room located at 400 W. Northern Lights Blvd., Anchorage, Alaska  99503.  Parents, students, and the community are always invited and welcome. Contact the  Front office for more information 1-907-742-1181.


    Next Meeting: 2:00-3:30 pm, Aug 15, 2019  APC AGENDA


    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."
