The Frontier Board of Education welcomes district residents, staff members, students and any others interested, to its meetings. Your presence indicates concern for our schools and the education of the children in Frontier. Generally, these meetings are held in the Frontier Educational Center, but may take place in one of the District's six schools.
A major goal of the Board is to maintain a collaborative, working relationship between the school district and the Frontier community. Community involvement at board meetings is encouraged to enable the Board to better understand and represent its constituents.
There are several types of meetings, including regular business meetings, work sessions, special meetings and committee meetings that are open to the public.
- Regular Business Meetings are open to the public in the Frontier Educational Center, 5120 Orchard Avenue, beginning at 7:00 PM as posted.

These meetings are permitted only for a limited number of specific purposes including personnel matters, litigation, collective negotiations, proposed sale or lease of property and other topics that are deemed confidential by the Open Meeting Law of New York State.
