FastBridge K-3 This informative assessment will help you track the progress of your child’s early literacy skills. FastBridge will be a live, one-on-one assessment given by a Frontier Advisor.

i-Ready Diagnostic, K-8 Frontier Charter has purchased an i-Ready account of our own to serve our families. This can be taken in your own home to chart the academic growth of your students. After the diagnostic has been taken, you may also use the program as a supplementary curriculum in language arts and math for grades K-8. i-Ready will give your student practice lessons in these subjects at the levels that the diagnostic determined. The testing window will remain open for the month of September. The diagnostic can be paused and resumed as often as needed. All progress is saved automatically.
Your student can access i-Ready by logging into Clever through the ASDk12.org website. Choose "Student Login", then "Log in with Active Directory". For all K-8 students, the username should be "lastname.firstname". The password for K-2 students is "12345", and grades 3-6 is "firstname". The password for middle school students may be their local ID number or their first name.
If you need further assistance please reach out to your advisor.
TUTORING AT OUR OFFICES
We are pleased to announce that tutor sessions resumed on August 23rd from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. We meet in Anchorage on Tuesdays and Eagle River on Wednesdays. This is an excellent opportunity for students that might need extra help or encouragement to keep moving forward for a successful school year.
Whether you are a new family joining us for the first time or a returning family, we hope you enjoyed your summer break and are eager to start a new homeschool year!
We are looking forward to seeing you soon! For questions, please contact your respective advisors.
