Bond Proposal Delayed

After reviewing the results of the community survey and speaking with several groups of staff members, our administrative bond team has decided to postpone the bond vote from May 2023 to a later date. This brief postponement will provide our team and the Facilities Planning Committee the time needed to explore some additional concepts as well as avenues to enhance security measures in all of our schools.

While this temporary delay is frustrating, it is the right time for us all to take a step back and fully consider all of the potential bond improvements before collectively deciding on the right plan for the future of Ferndale Schools. Bond opportunities are rare and it is imperative that we ensure we are fully exploring all options before deciding as a community what to invest in. Our financial advisors have also assured us that a temporary delay in the bond vote would have a minimal impact on the potential revenue gained.

The community Town Hall meeting that was set to take place next week is also going to be moved to a later date in early 2023.
