[Ferndale, Wash.] The Ferndale School District is releasing the first Thoughtexchange results from a two-month-long effort to gather input from the Ferndale Community about the process for building a new Ferndale High School and moving forward with other bond related projects. Results from the Exchange have been compiled into a digital report and sorted into the following topical themes:

•    Building and Campus Features
•    Construction Process
•    Fiscal Responsibility
•    Input and Engagement
•    Project on Time
•    Safety and Security
•    School Programs and Courses
•    Transparent Communication 
•    Other

Ferndale School District Superintendent Dr. Linda Quinn thanks the community and talks about what the District plans to do with the results, “Thank you to those who participated. Thoughtexchange results help us discover what is most important in our community as we move forward with our bond projects at Ferndale High School and throughout the District. Specifically, the Ferndale School District will soon be recruiting for Design Advisory Committee members who will help us in the design phase of the Ferndale High School Project. That Committee will review these results and other forms of community input as they assemble recommendations.”

The Ferndale School District will continue to engage with the Community through Thoughtexchange and various other opportunities including focus groups, public events and Town Halls. The first Town Hall event will take place on Tuesday, June 11th at 6:30 PM in the Ferndale High School Cafeteria. Details will follow.
