Frontier's New Look
You should start to notice some very intentional things happening in the Frontier district in the upcoming weeks after Spring Break! We are ready to share with our community and the world just how proud we are of our schools! Are you ready?
NEW WEBSITE COMING!
Yes, a new website is coming to Frontier! We are very excited to showcase our new website in the upcoming few weeks. Our new website should be more user friendly and easier to navigate. It will take some getting used to in determining where things are on the new website, but we think you will find that it is easy to use. Look for the new website after Spring Break! And also notice Frontier's New Look!
Frontier Enrollment on Upswing!
The enrollment at Frontier Schools continues to increase despite neighbors to our borders experiencing declining enrollment. Our September 2014 official count date (the date on which school funding is calculated), the district experienced an increase of 17 students over the same count day on September 2013. This past February 2, 2105 was an additional count date which showed Frontier Schools increasing another 8 students. This enrollment trend is excitingly beating projections this year!
Transfer forms will be mailed home around spring break to those parents who elect to bring their children to Frontier, for the 2015-2016 school year. With 76 transfer 'in' students (over 10% of our enrollment), it is easy to see that Frontier remains a top choice for parents who live in and around our area! We know that great things happen every day at Frontier, and we are sure proud to show it!
The School Board has worked in recent months to plan for further improvements to all facilities in the Frontier School Corporation and to complete those projects that were not selected in our last building project due to cost. Improvements slated include; an advanced media lab at the junior/senior high school, safety upgrades to both schools, signage to both schools, outdoor lighting improvements, energy savings projects at both buildings, locker room addition with large group area (could be weight room) at junior/senior high school, renovating the white barn (football concession, restrooms, locker room), shower improvements to junior/senior high school, auditorium improvements, music/band room at junior/senior high school improvements, vocational equipment, administrative center improvements, preschool playground remodeling, and storage building with pressbox area for girls softball field.
