Dear Ferndale community,
In 2012, the Board of Education began to envision what Ferndale Schools would look like in the future by drafting a Strategic Plan. During this process, the Board engaged with the community extensively to determine its concerns and needs, while commissioning a comprehensive analysis of our buildings to determine the most efficient and effective use of the School District's resources moving forward. After careful consideration, the Board of Education approved the Strategic Plan and developed a visionary goal to move our district into the future.
This is an awesome time to be an Eagle because of the exciting changes that are already underway! Beginning in the fall of 2016, Ferndale elementary students will be engaging with the rigorous Cambridge International curriculum while continuing to benefit from our Open Classroom tradition. Students will also participate in project-based and experiential learning and gain access to Spanish at an early age. Ferndale will continue to welcome parents and community members into our schools as partners in education and progress. These are exceptional opportunities that mirror our unique and diverse Ferndale community.
The story of our restructuring and the process we are now undergoing is extensive and inspiring. Please spend a few minutes reviewing this site to learn all about how these changes will impact the district.
With Eagle Pride,
Blake J. Prewitt, Ed. S.
