Associated Student Body (ASB) funds are public monies raised on behalf of students and are used for optional, extra-curricular events of a cultural, athletic, recreational or social nature. In general, carryover amounts from one year to another are due to anticipated expenditures for student activities which take more than a year of fundraising. These funds are not available for curricular or graded student activities.This financial report reflects the detailed ASB account balances by school. This report is unaudited and may not reflect final ending balances for the year.Click the links below to view ASB Fund Balance Reports by year:

An impact fee is a fee that is imposed by a local government on a new or proposed development project to pay for all or a portion of the costs of providing public services to the new development. Impact fees are considered to be a charge on new development to help fund and pay for the construction or needed expansion of offsite capital improvements. These fees are implemented to help reduce the economic burden on local jurisdictions that are trying to deal with population growth within the area.
Impact fees are very common in Washington State, and generally pay for less than half the cost of any growth-related project, meaning the existing community still pays a large portion of project costs for infrastructure related to growth.
The City of Ferndale currently charges transportation and park impact fees. The City also ensures any required school impact fees are paid to the Ferndale School District prior to building permit issuance.
School Impact Fees (Ord. 1300):
- $1,100 per Single Family Residence Dwelling Unit;
- $650 per Multifamily Dwelling Unit
Please call to schedule an appointment to pay impact fees.
Listed below are Interlocal Agreements currently in effect and as adopted by Ferndale School District #502.
Prior to its entry into force, an agreement made pursuant to this chapter shall be filed with the county auditor or, alternatively, listed by subject on a public agency's web site or other electronically retrievable public source.

The Ferndale School District invites businesses to apply to become a listed contractor on our Small Works Roster which is used to expedite the solicitation and award of bids up to $300,000 for construction and repair on our public works projects. Public works include all work, construction, alteration, repair, or improvement other than ordinary maintenance. The purpose of the Small Works Roster is to form a pool of contractors for various small construction projects. In general, to be listed on the district’s Small Work Roster, applicants must:
- Hold a current Washington State contractor’s license
- Agree to pay the appropriate prevailing wage rate
- File Intents and Affidavits of paid prevailing wages
- Meet and maintain specific insurance requirements
- Meet performance bond requirements
- Must not be debarred from performing work on public works projects
- Accept the Terms and Conditions of the Ferndale School District Contract
Prevailing wages are required on every project. Costs to file prevailing wage statements with the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries are to be paid by the contractor. The Small Works Roster is renewed/updated annually. Contractors wishing to remain on the roster will be required to submit a letter of continued interest on business letterhead for Ferndale School District consideration for inclusion on the Small Works Roster and an updated application where information has changed. Questions regarding our Small Works Roster application process can be directed to Tammy Longstaff at (360) 383-9203 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Ferndale School District has the authority to declare books, materials, furniture, equipment and other district personal property obsolete and/or surplus. The sale of surplus items is typically conducted in the spring and fall of each year and in compliance with the requirements of RCW 28A.335.180.
Once the board of directors have approved items for surplus, a link to the list of the approved items will appear on this page.
Individuals interested in purchasing surplus items will need to complete the bid form and adhere to all of the bid procedure requirements. Bidders will be notified of their bid status by mail, following the bid closing date.
