Dear Frontier Community Members,
Frontier Public Schools will host a community meeting on Thursday, September 8, 2022, at 6:30 PM in the cafeteria to discuss releasing students early on Fridays beginning in October 2022. We would release students at 1:05 PM, and bus routes would run, as usual, only two hours earlier. This process is still in the discussion phase but could be voted on at the school board meeting on September 12, 2022, at 8:00 AM.
We would like to use the two additional hours for teacher collaboration. Collaboration allows teachers planning time to create targeted and thoughtful instruction which benefits students. This protected time would also improve teacher morale and allow all teachers who perform multiple duties (bus routes, athletic practices, etc.) to discuss and disaggregate data with their colleagues. Additionally, this will provide focused time to align standards and ensure our students receive an education that will prepare them for the next grade level.
Fridays will still be vital instructional days. Though the class time may be shorter, the level of instruction will remain structured and meaningful. High school students will attend abbreviated classes, but each class will still meet.
The school and community relationship is a critical part of our educational system. We want to hear from parents and guardians before we move forward with this plan. Please make every effort to attend the community meeting or email one of our administrators with any questions or concerns you may have:
