MLO Spending Plan

Frontier Academy
MLO Priorities & Spending Plan
Frontier Charter Academy exists as a public school in Greeley-Evans District 6. As a charter school, its needs and spending differs from non-charter schools. Frontier's MLO spending plan differs slightly from that of the district at large. 

Frontier Academy's spending plan still reflects many of the values evident in District 6's plan, especially in areas of safety and security, curriculum updates, and technology improvement. 

Frontier Academy is dedicated to maintaining the same standard of financial transparency in its MLO funds allotment as it does in regular budgetary spending. 

Frontier Academy is grateful to the Greeley-Evans community for investing in our students, our staff, and our school.
