School District hosts ‘listening session’ with Bond Oversight Committee appointees

Ferndale School Board officials recently announced the appointees to the Bond Oversight Committee. The committee will be officially formed if voters approve the proposed Ferndale School Bond on the ballot in November’s General Election. The committee will be responsible for determining bond revenue is used for the projects identified on the ballot.

But the School Board “wants to empower this oversight process as early as possible and we want our community to be part of that,” said Ferndale School District Board President Dr. Kevin Erickson. So the Ferndale School District has announced two listening sessions for this month.

The first will be held Monday, October 15th, at the North Bellingham Learning Center from 6pm to 7pm. The second will be on Tuesday, October 16th, at Custer Elementary School from 7pm to 8pm.

The listening sessions are intended, according to district officials, to provide opportunities for the community to meet the Bond Oversight Committee appointees and engage in two-way conversations regarding the committee’s role and future plans. All community members are invited and encouraged to attend.
