Review team recommends accreditation through 2019 and comments on powerful practices
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 Academic Policy Committee members are parents and/or members of our community. 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.
In the spring of 2014, through the AdvancED accreditition process, the external 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."
