Both qualified vendors and teachers may provide their services to Frontier. Each group has different requirements for making themselves eligible. Please make sure you read the Conflict of Interest (below) which is ASD's policy.
CONFLICT OF INTEREST (Important Please read!)
Annual filing is required -Conflict of interest documentation must be filed annually by employees (fiscal year is July 1 - June 30).
Vendors: Vendors may provide services. Requirements for becoming a vendor include completion of the a contract depending upon the amount of payment a vendor is expecting during the fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) an appropriate contract for all work done with other ASD schools, charter schools or administration. Once the contract is approved via purchasing, we are allow to make payments. Please make sure we receive invoices. This can be either the vendor or parent. Invoice may be faxed to 742-1188 or emailed to Scott.
There are two categories of vendor contracts:
- Vendors who have <$2500 in gross revenue from ASD: These businesses may fill out a one-page Personal Services Contract that requires an Alaska Business License No. and a taxpayer ID No. The liablility insurance is optional but recommended.
- Vendors with >$2500 in gross revenue from ASD:A more detailed contract is required from these businesses and the certificate of insurance is required. Vendors must carry a minimum of $1,000,000 of insurance. District and State regulations require this. It is very intimidating for small, home-based businesses. Frontier is working on several sources that will be affordable. Vendors would be expected to pass on this expense to their clients as part of the cost of doing business.
The contract approval process takes three to four weeks and invoices cannot be processed until the contract has been approved. To avoid delays in payment, vendors should start the approval process before classes begin. The contract amount should be the total of all work a vendor plans to do with Frontier and any other part of ASD. If an invoice is received that exceeds the amount of the approved contract a new contract must be processed.
Please call or email Scott Grant, Business Manager at the school office at 742-1184 if you have any questions regarding the process.
Teachers: Teachers who are on the ASD eligible-to-hire list fall in this category. If you are a teacher but not on the ASD list you will be considered a vendor but may still teach a tutorial. Whether you are considered a vendor or teacher depends upon how you are paid.
Teachers can be part of Frontier in two ways:
- As Academic Advisors - this is a full-time position. Teachers serve as contacts for families in ILP development. We are currently fully-staffed but will be hiring another Academic Advisor when enrollment increases.
- As instructors of tutorials - Tutorials are small group classes. They may developed in one of two ways. The principal may ask a teacher to develop a tutorial to meet a need or demand he has found in the school or a teacher may have a tutorial he/she wants to teach. In this latter case, submit a Tutorial Submission Form to the Principal. All tutorials must be approved by the Principal,. Please email Mr. Scott your class information. This should include your course syllabus, grade level you are wishing to teach, cost of class, when/where you will be meeting for class.
Teachers are paid on an addendum contract or a special activities contract and charge a flat rate per student. If a teacher is working at Frontier at >50% there will be calculations for retirement, insurance and so on. Any questions about teaching pay may be directed to our Business Manager Scott Grant , 742.1184, .
