Financial Report to Board
ASB Fund Balance Reports
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 the 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; $550 per Multifamily Dwelling Unit

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Director District Boundary Changes Proposed
Affects school board elections only, not schools
Ferndale, Washington – Every ten years, after each U.S. Census is completed, school districts must review the boundaries of their board of director districts to ensure equitable geographic representation. Ferndale School District is divided into five geographic regions or districts, one for each board seat. Candidates for the school board must run for the seat of the director district they live in. By creating five equal director districts, geographic diversity is ensured on the school board. Each position is elected by all district voters, so each of the five directors represents the entire district in their board actions.
These boundaries are completely unrelated to school attendance boundaries: this process will not change any neighborhood school boundaries.
In February 2021, the district contracted with Sammamish Data Systems to develop a proposal for new director district boundaries based on the latest census data. Since the last realignment of director districts, there has been a small shift in population growth. Currently, our director districts vary in population from a low of 6,490 in District 1 to a high of 7,741 in District 2.
The proposed new director district boundaries would balance these populations so that all five districts would have approximately 7,130 residents.
|District||Current Population||Population under the Proposal|
A presentation and public hearing on this proposal will be held on August 30, 2022, prior to the regular school board meeting. The hearing will begin at 5:45pm. Current and proposed maps are also available on the district website, www.ferndalesd.org. The board will consider this matter for adoption at the August 30, 2022, meeting. The board must adopt new director districts by November 15, 2022
