These are strange times. We have seen so many changes in the last few months and there are more coming. We have changed the way we work, eat, shop, travel, spend time with friends and family, and the way we teach our children. These changes have been and continue to be challenging for many of us and come with uncertainty about the future.
The Ferndale School Board is acknowledging these difficult times and uncertainty about the future, while adhering to their objective of supporting the School District’s efforts to provide educational opportunities and resources for our children. This November, they will be requesting that voters approve a replacement of our current levy at a lower rate of 1.50 for calendar years 2021 and 2022. The current levy, at a rate of 2.17, is set to expire at the end of 2020.
Funding schools is an important part of any community’s economic vitality. Great communities have great schools and this community’s future prosperity depends on a robust and vibrant public school system. The education of our youth provides hope and opportunity for the future, a future that lives here in Ferndale.
Let’s continue this legacy of supporting our kids, our community, and our future. Join your friends and neighbors in supporting Ferndale school programs by voting YES for the levy by November 3, 2020.
